Surfing is one of the fastest developing sports in the world today. First
practiced by the ancient Polonesians, the tradition was set forth by mostly
fishermen, "Men of the sea." Nowadays though, anybody and everybody can
Surfing is the art of riding the face of a wave, that was born hundreds of
miles away in a storm. This "art", as all surfers like to call it (as
opposed to a "sport"), requires a good sense of balance, and a love of the
ocean. Learning to surf is not an easy task, it also requires a lot of
dedication. Learning to sit up right on your board, or even to paddle the
right way can be a hard task. If you do not know what you are doing, thanks to
nobody actually telling you, you could be at it for months.
This is what we are going to try and help you out with. This site is aimed at
people that have never surfed before, but have now decided to get into it for
some reason. Like we said before, it takes a lot of dedication; if you are
just doing this for image, then go get a life elsewhere. If, however, you want
to experience the rush of taming a natural force, something that most
non-surfers would never do, then you have come to the right place.
We will take you from the start, up until where you can start practicing on
your own. There is nothing better than riding your first wave, and as every
surfer knows, every wave is your first wave...
