Rate this:
Although surfing originated in Hawaii as part of Polynesian culture, Americans adopted a blonde-haired, blue-eyed male surfer cliche that still dominates today. The role of black surfers is explored by introducing audiences to the likes of Michael Green, Rick Blocker, Sal Maselka, and Dr. Charles Ross. These guests recount their personal journey, while discussing surf history, its origin and revolution, all the while preserving the love of catching that giant wave.

Who knew surfing originated with Black people? I didn't. Excellent historical information.
