Europe in 1886, ''Before Beach Boy Surfing.''

The picture was taken by Peter Henry Emerson in 1886. It's called "Quanting the Marsh Hay." It is likely that the photo was taken in the East Anglian fenlands in the UK, as that is where Peter Emerson took most of his photographs.
Thanks to Andre at , an excellent surfing and SUP website, who discovered the photo and shared with the SUP community..

I'm sure that this type of ''Stand Up'' was a means of transportation and survival in all the aquatic cultures around the world since the beginning of time...
