    今日小常識

    The first surfing boards were made out of solid wood and were extremely difficult to steer. In the 1930s American surfer Tom Blake made a lighter, hollow board and added a fin under the tail, which meant that surfers could control the board better. Since then, new materials like fibreglass have been used to gradually make boards lighter and easier to handle.

    早期的衝浪板都是實木製作的,所以非常難駕馭。上世紀 30 年代,美國衝浪者 Tom Blake 製造了一款空心體輕的衝浪板,並在尾部背面加了一個鰭,這樣一來有助於衝浪者對衝浪板的控制。從那以後,不斷有新的材料被用於衝浪板的製作,比如玻璃纖維,新材料製作的衝浪板更加輕巧和容易受控。
