Agatha Christie loved to surf.
"Oh, it was heaven!" she wrote in her memoirs. "Nothing like it. Nothing like that rushing through the water at what seemed to you a speed of about two hundred miles an hour; all the way in from the far distant raft, until you arrived, gently slowing down, on the beach, and foundered among the soft flowing waves."And the Museum of British Surfing has opened in Devon. Some surfers used coffin lids as surfboards.
