Here we'll outline the basics of surfing for people wishing to start.
Learning to surf can takes a long time and just as you would take skiing lessons to learn to ski, lessons with a decent BSA surf instructor will improve your surf/safety knowledge a great deal. In our opinion you do not need to make a career out of visiting surf schools or taking long surfing "courses" however we consider an introductory lesson money well spent to learn the basics.We know that using qualified instructors mean you learn faster than if you just enter the water yourself and try to learn alone. The instructor also teaches you about the ocean as it can be a dangerous place to play. He also explains clearly a lot of basic but important rules that all surfers abide by.
