Who here likes to surf? I just got back into it after about 4 years of no surfing and I forgot how fun it is ! Ill definetly be doing this as my off season sport to keep me sane. I live in beautiful surf city california (Santa Cruz) so that helps alot haha.
I always wanted to try surfing...in fact it is the reason I took up snowboarding, cause I thought it would be the next best thing. Now, I think snowboarding is probably better than surfing (no sharks/jellyfish/skull crushing coral reefs, etc) but I still want to try surfing. How hard would it be for a middle-aged buffoon to learn?
Never tried it, but since I got into snowboarding, I have been wanting to try it. I hear that it is actually harder to learn than riding?......
I found that it is actually very easy to transfer. In those 4 years I havent been surfing I have been doing nothing but snowboarding. The only hard part is that snowboarding is more a leg oriented sport and surfing needs lots of upper body strength to paddle. Its great fun I say go for it
