Surfing is a very tricky deal and surf lessons can help eliminate some of the pains and sufferings a beginner can have.
Surfboards. The long and short of it.
The surfboard size is probably the most critical gear choice. When in doubt get the bigger one.
It will make it easier to start learning. If you have questions on what size board is right for you. Email me at email@example.com with your height and weight and I will get right back with some suggestions.Leash and wet suit. A leash is a must and should be the same length or longer than the surfboard in most cases.
Make sure you study the waves if they have any size before you paddle out.
You are looking for the best spot to paddle out with the least amount of white water resistance. Watch others who paddle out and see where it is easiest. Then walk out until you get about waist deep( most areas )and get your stroke going and paddle as hard as you can. Keep your chest up when you paddle for more power.Picking your wave. Timing takes time. Just like a baseball batter waiting for the pitch, the surfer is waiting for the wave, sets and then paddles to catch it. The timing required usually comes with surfing experience or jump started with a professional surf lesson.
Generally, speaking the person closest to the curl or the white water is the owner of that wave.
If you take a wave in front or behind that person already surfing you would be penalized if it was a surfing contest. It is a good idea to surf by this rule…. contest or not.Hi Matt,
