If you’re ready to join surfers like Chad Boulter, you’re in for quite a ride. Surfing is a rewarding and addicting sport with a slow learning curve, as opposed to the steep-yet-fast curves of other sports. Tips like those below can help you stick with it and continue to improve:

  • Boards Matter

Surfboards aren’t like equipment for other sports. Having the perfect surfboard can be the difference between catching twenty waves or zero in a day. Ask a local surf shop for advice and, when in doubt, look for wide, thick, long boards with flat rockers.

  • Research Surf Spots

Don’t head to a surf spot without researching it, learning if it’s good for beginners and checking the weather for the day. Research can save the day, or even your life.

Remember, surfing comes with a slow learning curve and even those with years under their belts, like Chad Boulter, wipe out regularly. Expect falls, and practice as often as you can.
