Bellyboarding: A digital postcard from Cornwall

The tongue in cheek event, the World Bellyboarding Championships, has become an annual event in Cornwall, UK beginning 9 years ago. But riding these simple wooden bellyboards date back way beyond the event, some say into the 1800s, however, the activity did not become popular in the region until after World War 1 in the 1920s. With help from the rebirth of the alaia, this event continues to help to preserve and commemorate this almost forgotten activity. The costumes and vintage swimwear are awesome!
