- TIP #4 -- Go body surfing!
- Find your inner “waterman”. Or just go swim (preferably with swim fins) in the surf zone. This will help you to feel comfortable getting tossed around by the waves. Eventually you will figure out how not to get tossed around and may even enjoy a good thrashing. Bodysurf the waves. Figure out the timing and how to turn your body into a board and ride the waves to the beach. An old fav, pull into the barrel and throw a peace sign or a “shaka” at your buddy. This is a good workout and will help you to understand wave dynamics. In the end it will pay off with you catching more waves while surfing.
