【今日小常识】

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.

早期的冲浪板都是实木制作的,所以非常难驾驭。上世纪 30 年代,美国冲浪者 Tom Blake 制造了一款空心体轻的冲浪板,并在尾部背面加了一个鳍,这样一来有助于冲浪者对冲浪板的控制。从那以后,不断有新的材料被用于冲浪板的制作,比如玻璃纤维,新材料制作的冲浪板更加轻巧和容易受控。
