"I will show you how to play with the ocean,"
Said Malu-Kangaroo.
He took some wood
And he worked it,
And he shaped it and rubbed it
and smoothed it,
And he floated it upon the water...

This poignant story tells of how people first learned to surf through Malu Kangaroo, a kangaroo spirit, who carves a piece of wood and takes it to some children playing on a beach. He floats it on the water and shows them how to use it. The children learn to balance and guide the board through the waves "riding the high crests" and "flying before the crashing breakers."
