Every surfer starts out the same way.
You get a beginner’s board (which is three times bigger than the one you were expecting ) and head down to the beach, hoping to be out at the back by the end of the day.
The reality is you’ll spend the first few sessions in the shallows, trying to throw yourself on the whitewater and get upright.
Once you’ve perfected your pop on these smaller waves, it can seem a bit daunting to head out further back and try for the unbroken ‘green waves’ with the real surfers.
If you’re wanting to get out of the baby pool and ride with the big kids, follow our steps, you’ll be catching those waves in no time.
