Is it difficult to learn how to surf?

No, it’s not difficult.

It does take some patience and commitment. First off, make sure you know how to swim. Most people can stand up on the surfboard after taking 1 or 2 surf lessons with a good instructor. There are lots of resources on the internet (like this website… shameless plug) to get you mentally prepared and let you know what to expect when surfing for the first time.

There are surf camps and surf instructors all over the world just about anywhere there’s a beach with waves. Personally speaking there weren’t alot of resources when I started in 1990. A friend had given me a short board and I remember paddling around in 55 degree water with no wetsuit. Yikes! I fell in love with just being in the water and was hooked from day one…

Looking back that first day changed the rest of my life as I have centered my life around surfing. Once you ride that first wave, you’ll feel the adrenaline rush that all surfers feel. Even 20 years later, I still get this feeling when riding a wave…
