You wouldn’t be here if you weren’t interested in learning how to surf. But before we teach you how to surf, let’s take a step back and look at what surfing really is all about.
First off, surfing is a sport, just like soccer and football. It’s an athletic (and competitive) activity that takes a lot of practice and physical conditioning to be successful at it. But that’s just one layer of it.
Surfing is a lifestyle. It carries with it a style of dress, a global dialect, and a simplistic view of life’s realities. Surfer’s have a constant pursuit to find the best waves out there, almost making their intense dedication seem religious.
The surfing industry has exploded into a multi-million dollar industry that churns out everything from surf boards, clothing and accessories, to major motion pictures and exotic travel packages. It’s mind boggling just how far surfing has come just in the past few decades.
Does any of this really matter? Not really. Surfing is not about being competitive, living a certain way, or making money. It’s about you, your surf board, and the ocean. Surfing’s essence is found in that very first time you stand up on your board. It’s that feeling of energy. I call it a rush. Surfing takes you places and let’s you meet new people. Surfer’s all have one thing in common, they just want to surf. Plain and simple. Life is better when you surf. I can’t imagine life without it.
Now, are you ready? Let’s go surfing! Come on, grab your board and lets start from the beginning.
