Surboards.
Although lessons do cost, you can always learn to surf on your own, the way it was done back in the "old days." Lessons are good because you can be riding on your first try and you don't have to go out and buy a surfboard. (Buying your first surfboard is a separate subject altogether.)
Lessons are also good because it makes the journey to surf competency much faster by cutting out the common mistakes everyone makes. You can be riding the white water, working on your balance and gaining valuable experience rather than falling repeatedly and maybe even getting hit by your board and injuring yourself.
There is no substitute for just plain surfing a lot! The more time you spend in the water, the better you are going to surf. If you can't get to the surf, swimming in a pool is a good workout for paddling. And if you don't have access to a surfboard, riding a bodyboard or body surfing is always good for increasing your knowledge of the waves, of how they break, of what the ocean is like, all essential for good surfing.
ASK THE SURF MONKEY The Surf Monkey.
IF YOU'RE OUT THERE IN THE SURF TRYING IT ON YOUR OWN, AND WANT TO KNOW, "WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?", JUST EMAIL THE SURF MONKEY AND HE'LL GIVE YOU HIS WISE MONKEY ADVICE DICTATED BY THE LAWS OF THE JUNGLE AND 40 YEARS OF SURF EXPERIENCE ON THE BEACHES OF CALIFORNIA, FRANCE, MEXICO, COSTA RICA & HAWAII!!!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW, LIKE WHERE SHOULD I SURF, WHAT KIND OF BOARD SHOULD I GET, HOW CAN I STAY OUT OF TROUBLE IN CROWDED SURF SPOTS, GO AHEAD AND CLICK ON THE PICTURE OF THE SURF MONKEY AND SEND THE SURF MONKEY AN EMAIL.
