In ancient Polynesia Tahiti, as we now knew it a long time ago; Perhaps Samoa or Tonga, or perhaps much further north along the dark banks of old Hawaii – saw the locals curious about the angry waves who reject their sand from the island.
Swimming, until then the main pastime was, but suddenly they moved with tables of their best wood in the ocean, and they began to change with enthusiasm and zeal waves.
