    Why doesn't Middle-earth have surf boards?

    Sauron outlawed them. After his competitive surfing team of Nazguls got disqualified on accounts that Nazgul hate water...

    Because they are even more dangerous than boats.

    Why doesn't Middle-Earth have surfboards?

    Because of the variety of alternatives: swan boats, pirate ships, time-warping Ranger boats, even an island from time to time. Going out an anything smaller works well enough for the desperate or fearless, in which case just about any old log or barrel will do, but one risks a great deal to fire-breathing salamanders, sorcerous snowstorms and of course that tentacled thing. But one of these days some adventurer will come along and, after a few too many thwacks to the head, look sideways at a shield, and -voila! - the Watcher gets a nice collection of dinnerware.

    Cool Why doesn't Middle-earth have surf boards?

    Of course there is surf boards! How do you think Gandalf the White returned to Middle Earth from land of Aman by himself? Taking the straight road on the crest of the wave baby, Istari style! Think about it.

    (insert Beach Boys music here)

    If every Nazgul had a Surfboard
    At the Bruinen Ford
    Then every wraith'd be surfin'
    An swinging Mordor Swords
    You'd see them wearing their Death shrouds
    and macking Elrond's tube
    Ash-a-ash-a-nazg durbatulûk
    Surfin' with Ring Wraiths...

    Why doesn't Middle-earth have surf boards?

    Because bottomless-bellied hobbits inevitably appropriate them for use as dinner plates.

    "Why doesn't Middle-earth have surf boards?"

    Ulmo banned them because they were used at the Kinslaying at Alqualondë.
    Another one bites the dust...

    Because Belfalas Sea shores doesn't have big enough waves & Icy Bay shore waves will give you frostbite. We need warm ocean size waves for surfing. Then a chicken over an old outhouse door can climb the waves.
