Australia celebrates 100 years of surfing

Australians learned how to surf a century ago, and now their country is known as the home of the sport.

    A 100 years have passed since the Hawaiian Olympian, Duke Kahanamoku, gave a demonstration surf in Sydney and popularised surfing for the masses.

    A century on, a re-enactment of that famous surf has been carried out on the same beach where it was performed - one of the most popular beaches in Sydney known as Freshwater beach.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Thomas reports from Sydney.
