Did William the Conqueror surf ashore?

Bayeux Tapestry

Today’s news that Hawaiian princes surfed England’s east coast in the 19th century makes me wonder how far back in history can the Museum go? The Bayeaux tapestry should be checked very carefully – William of Normandy may have beaten Edward VIII by 9 centuries to be the first English surfing monarch! Hastings goes off.
