basics on learning to surf
|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
