We are happy to partner with fierce female-led brand, SLO active, to inspire beginner surfers to go and explore the oceans, through the launch of our collaborative Beginner's Guide to Surfing focusing on getting more ladies in the lineup.
Have you always wanted to try surfing, and didn’t know how to start? The Beginners Guide to Surfing contains helpful guidance for those who are new and interested in the sport.
Surfing is about connecting with the ocean and embracing the elements in all their forms. It requires adaptability and resilience, and in return provides a euphoric feeling of freedom and independence. Although the world has changed a great deal recently, with COVID-19 and travel limitations, surfing is still something we can turn to for activity, exercise and wellness, especially since we are naturally social distancing in the water and as long as we surf responsibly, we can still enjoy our favorite activity.
So, when our friends at SLO active reached out to join forces on the Beginners Guide to Surfing, it was a no-brainer. This informative guide will help beginner surfers make the first steps into the ocean. The Guide includes FAQ’s about the sport, as well as in-depth information including the basics of surfing, guidance on choosing the right surfboard, the differences in waves, different surf maneuvers, surf fitness, the rules of surfing and water safety, all factors that are important to know when beginning to surf.
