A surfer grabs a ride at Steamer Lane Tuesday morning at low tide as the top of the kelp forest is exposed in the wave face. Surfing was introduced to the North American mainland in 1885, when three young Hawaiian princes – David Kawananakoa, Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana’ole Edward Keli’iahonui surfed the break at the mouth of the San Lorenzo River in Santa Cruz.
