Surfing is a nexus of steps. Syncing all body parts along, hand-eye-leg coordination and multiple instances of plunging into water will make you a good surfer. It is also a complex sport since no two waves are the same, meaning you are hustling with a new challenge every time you catch a wave.
It’s a breathless experience with sun, sand and water keeping your adrenaline at its peak.
Surfing begins by getting in the middle of the water, where waves are predominantly forming. Once inside, the surfer matches the speed of the wave by paddling towards the shore. Once the wave begins to carry the surfer forward, they stand up and proceed to ride the wave. The basic idea is to remain ahead of the breaking part of the wave.
The size of the board matters according to your weight. The more weight you have, the bigger the board you will need.
Beginners must go with longboards ranging from 8 to 12 feet in length. It is easier to balance and paddle on a longboard because of more volume.
