Glassy-Tips for Beginners

Begginers

“For many folks, surfing is a passion and a romance. It can be thrilling; it can be thrilling. Just like love, one might say.”

 

Surfing is the sport of riding waves. Surfers catch ocean, river or made waves, and glie across the surface of the water until the wave breaks and loses its energy. Surfing is a way of life, a philosophy. It is all about nature, fun, practice and respect.

So you want to learn to surf? Here you will find many tips that maybe can help you in your first steps into this –amazing- world!

2

1.-Always, above all things, have fun!

As Phil Edwards said: “The best surfer out there is the one having most fun”.

2.-Learn with someone.

First steps into surf can be (as in any other sport) a bit hard and maybe dangerous to yourself and others! So it is time to get an experienced friend to teach or maybe a surf camp.

3

3.-Peace & Love.

Time is not a limit, the limit is just in your mind, so be pacefull with yourself! You will feel really excited once you get into the water but try to be patient and enjoy the experience!

4.-Soft makes the difference.

Did you know that you will be spending a lot of time sitting on your soft.top? If not, it is the perfect moment to know this. Beginings are not that much easy and Soft-tops are good entry boards and safer for eveybody involved.

8

5.-Size matters.

Do not start surfing on smaller, shorter boards as quick as possible. Remember point 3.- and be patient and pacefull with yourself!

6.-All together!

Learn to surf with other learners. First steps are always better together, you can learn from others in your same condition and also this places usually have good and small waves to learn better and safer!

4

7.-Bend your knees and not your back!

You will lose your balance if your position is not the right. Bend your back is not safe, not balanced and not a good look in surfing’s style book.

8.-Stay perpendicular.

Once the wave has broken you need-have to stay perpendicular to the whitewater. If you don’t, you’ve given all that energy more surface area to grab and your board, pulling you under the water and dragging you toward shore.

7

9.-Paddle, Paddle, Paddle!

Practice it a lot, you will need it! The key? Just to find a rhythm and to keep it. Waves can be brave and this requires to be in shape because it will be… quite exhausting the first few times!

10.-Who said Surf Trip?

This is probably the best idea. Friends, surf philosophy, sea, nature, food, good vibes and really good landscapes are waiting for you. It is the best option to learn and live a great life experience.

Bad times for Surf and Oceans
TheInertia

Plastic, its one of those love hate relationships and we’ve all had them. In our history on this planet we’ve seen the stone age, we’ve seen the bronze age and now we are seeing the plastic age. I know, I know this “age” doesn’t really have the same ring to it but its definitely made a massive impact on us from both the good and bad. We use plastic for absolutely everything, like bottles for the water we drink and even polluting our oceans that we surf.
