A person on a surfboard, riding on a wave in the ocean. Wears a wetsuit or board shorts in most versions.
Person Surfing was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 under the name “Surfer” and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
The Surfer emoji supports skin tone modifiers. A yellow (or other non-human) skin tone should be shown by default, unless an emoji modifier is applied.
Platforms without support for emoji modifiers display a missing symbol character (box with a cross, alien, or question mark in it) next to any modified emoji.
