What is Surfboard or Surfing Board?

A surfboard is an elongated platform used in the sport of surfing. Surfboards are relatively light, but are strong enough to support an individual standing on them while riding a breaking wave. They were invented in ancient Hawaii, where they were known as papa he'e nalu in the Hawaiian language; they were usually made of wood from local trees, such as koa, and were often over 15 feet (5 m) in length and extremely heavy. Major advances over the years include the addition of one or more fins on the bottom rear of the board to improve directional stability, and numerous improvements in materials and shape.

Modern surfboards are made of polyurethane or polystyrene foam covered with layers of fiberglass, cloth and polyester or epoxy resin. The result is a light and strong surfboard that is buoyant and maneuverable. Recent developments in surfboard technology have included the use of carbon fiber. Each year, approximately 400,000 surfboards are manufactured. Longboards, as the name suggests, are longer (often 8 ft or 2.4 m or more), and are also thicker and wider, with a more rounded nose than a shortboard, making them stable and buoyant. Shortboards are shorter (5–7 ft or 1.5–2.1 m), thinner, and have a more pointed nose. They are not as wide as longboards and are typically more maneuverable.

Other variants include "guns" (big wave boards 7 to 12 feet (2.1 to 3.7 m) long and with a thin, needle-like appearance), longboard "guns", olos (wooden boards can exceed lengths of 24 feet (7.3 m)), fun-boards (combines elements of both shortboards and longboards and are generally midsized, usually 7 to 8 feet (2.1 to 2.4 m)), fish (short stubby boards under 6 feet (1.8 m) long), eggs (modern hybrid boards, usually 6 feet to 8 feet 6 inches (1.8–2.3 m) in length with a more rounded profile and tail shape), bonzers (surfboard with three or five fins with double concave channels), quads (reference to the number of fins this type of surfboard has, four), tow-boards, and hydrofoils.
