How to learn surfing

Surfing is a sport that requires strength, skill, and balance. Surfers stand on their boards with one foot ahead of the other. To learn surfing you should first begin on the beach, practicing surfing technique: learning about balance and stability, how to paddle, how to pop up on the board, and how to stand and ride a wave.

Surfing equipment hasn't changed much over the years, you only need a board to begin surfing. Still, you need other equipment before you plunge into the water such as using a leash. You should use a leash both to prevent your board from hitting others when you fall and to avoid losing the board. Most surfer also use applying wax to their board. Wax helps surfers' feet grip the boards.

To find surfing equipment and accessories you can go to surf shop in your area. The easiest way to find surf shop is by using surf shop directory online. Just select a state and a city, then you'll get list of surf shops in that area.
