Chad Boulter is a jazz musician based in Jupiter, Florida. His oceanside locale allows him to go surfing in his spare time. Boulter has worked at several musical clubs in the area as a band member and solo artist, specializing in playing the saxophone. Boulter started playing as a child and eventually developed his skills enough to make a career of his hobby and skill. Boulter’s lifestyle also allows him to surf and travel between gigs and practice sessions. Some of his favorite places to surf are located near his front door, but he loves to explore different areas and waters to catch waves.
Chad Boulter loves to share his love of surfing with others whenever possible. He takes friends and family with him on his surfing trips to teach them how to surf safely and have more fun in the ocean. Boulter likes to say, “surf at your own pace,” which describes how those new to surfing should approach the ocean and the waves that can cause damage to the uninitiated. Surfing is all about balance and getting a “feel” for the board and the water. He encourages his newer surfing buddies to start with a board that fits them and their body weight so they have a chance of balancing correctly and safely on the board as it rips through the water.
Surfing takes practice and falling off the board several times to become skilled. Chad Boulter has fallen himself many times and continues to take spills as he learns more. The key, he tells his friends and family, is getting back on the board.
