If you want to take up Surfing, it might be helpful (or at least fun) to understand the journey you are about to take. On the surface, surfing is no different from any other sport. It’s a competitive, athletic activity that takes practice and physical conditioning to achieve success. Like other sports, surfing has a list of rules, a playing field, worldwide organizations dedicated to staging contests for all levels and ages, and a computation system that makes it possible to quantify how “good” one rider is in comparison to another. However, that is only one layer of the complex nature of surfing. The definition further, surfing is a lifestyle that carries with it a style of dress, a regional and global dialect, and even an encompassing approach to life’s realities. Surfing is about the interaction between you and your board, you and the ocean, you and your buddies at the beach. It’s about how much fun you have during these interactions. Surfing’s essence is found in that first time you stand on a board and how you dream all night about that moment. It’s the energy, the rush, and that tight smile across your face.
