Surfing basics

Surfing Defined

Each of us have our own personal desire or reasons to go surfing.


It’s exhilarating, challenging, peaceful, energetic, and a really fun way to get into shape! It’s deeply rooted to nature, and best of all, we get to be on the beach with our bros and sisters!

Surfing is not just a sport. It’s a lifestyle.

Some surfers call it their religion and others call it a connection with the universe. It can be one’s hobby, another’s form of meditation, or even a check off the bucket list. It’s a sense of community at one’s local break yet it’s also an adventurous life of exploration. It can be a test of one’s mental or physical limits. It’s a connection spiritually and physically with all the elements around you.

Surfing is what you make it to be. 

And each time we kick out of that last wave, it always leaves us wanting to paddle back out for one more.
