Is learning to surf hard?
Learning to surf is hard. You’ve got to paddle out, catch a wave and then stand up on it before the thing breaks or you end up in the shallow waters with a mouth full of sand and your ego bruised. But don’t let that discourage you! The water is cold, but it’s worth it once you catch your first wave. And even if you fall off (and we all do), at least you’ll have some stories to tell about how hard it was and how much fun learning surfing was for everyone who watched us fail miserably at this awesome sport!
It’s easier than you think!
Surfing is one of the most fun activities you can do, and it’s a great way to get in touch with nature. You’ll also be getting some exercise without even realizing it! Surfing is also a great way to meet new people and make friends.
If you’re interested in learning how to surf, don’t worry—it’s easier than you think!
The best way to learn is with a surf school.
If you are looking to learn how to surf, the best way is with a surf school. Surf schools have instructors who can teach you all of the basics of surfing and keep you safe while doing so. You’ll be able to learn in a group that will support you if things go wrong and help motivate each other when things are going well.
The safest way for beginners to get started is on a SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board). This gives them an extra source of stability as they learn how to balance themselves on top of the water, which makes it easier than trying out traditional surfboards right off the bat. Once they have mastered paddling along with standing up on their board in flat water conditions (lakes or ponds), then they can graduate onto larger waves where more advanced skills are needed!
You will fall in the first few times you try this sport.
If you’re learning to surf, fall. It’s going to happen. You will wipe out and get water up your nose, sand in your bathing suit and possibly even get knocked unconscious by some waves. However, don’t let this discourage you! Falling is part of learning a new sport, so don’t dwell on it too much. And if you don’t fall at all while learning how to surf? Well then I’m going to guess that either A) You aren’t trying hard enough or B) You’re doing something wrong because falling is definitely part of surfing (at least for beginners).
You should have a basic level of fitness before you start surfing.
Surfing is about catching the wave, not about being in shape. However, if you can already run for a few minutes and lift your own body weight, it will be much easier to ride out a wave. The ability to paddle a kayak or other small boat is also useful if you hope to learn surfing on your own—it’ll save you having to wait around while someone else drives out into the ocean with their board balanced on top of their car roof. If you’re really keen on learning how to surf without lessons (and have access to a vehicle), then this might be something worth considering early on in your quest for stoke!
There are so many different types of waves to ride, it definitely won’t get boring.
