Surfing is high up on everyone’s list of things to try, but it’s not something you can do without some practice. The challenge in surfing is that you’re setting out to try it without knowing whether or not you’ll take to it with ease, and with that comes a fear of failure.
At surfing Croyde Bay a Croyde surf school we believe the fear of failing shouldn’t stop you from trying something new. Taking the time to take a surf lesson and learn a new skill can be highly rewarding, and surfing is a skill that takes a lot of practice. Nobody has ever jumped on a surfboard and become a natural just like that, but here are so useful hints and tips that will make that first attempt that much easier.
No matter how easy you think it might be, you should always have someone at your side when you’re learning how to surf. Whether it be an experienced friend or as part of a class, making sure you have someone with you to show you the ropes is vital to ensure you don’t cause yourself injury.
And if you do decide to take a class, make sure you research the best teacher for you. Having a good teacher is the difference between surfing feeling like a task and surfing being something to be inspired by.
You’ll need a beach that is appropriate for surfers who are just starting out, which means finding one with waves that don’t get too wild. Start with the smaller waves, and you’ll be steadily building yourself up in no time.
Remember – it’s also important to stretch and make sure everything is in order before you get into the water. Watch other people, copy their techniques. You’ll be doing this even when you’re an expert surfer.
