Tips for Beginning Surfers, Surf Tip #2

Continuing on with our “10 Tips” for beginner surfers series…
We know, it’s been awhile since we posted
Tip #1, but it’s been a busy summer of fun surf and as we move into the fall and winter months, it’s now time for Tip #2! So here ya go:

Tip #2: Be aware of your surroundings.

This will help you in life and it will help you in surfing. Carefully observing your surroundings will help you to:

1) Understand where the right spot is.
2) Maintain your position in the right spot.

Once out in the water, observe and notice if there is seaweed around, different shades of bottom color, or if there are “boils” from water being pushed up by rocks. Are there fish jumping, birds diving or dolphins swimming by? Where are the waves breaking? Where are most of the surfers sitting?

When you first get out in the line-up, orientate yourself and estimate on the best location to wait for waves. At beach breaks you can use landmarks on the shore. For example, you may decide that you want to stay between the pier and the ugly pink house. If you find yourself out of that zone, paddle back there. At point breaks or rocky zones you can use landmarks, but you may also have to also use patches of seaweed and “boils” to determine where the best spot to be is.
Paying close attention to where you are will help you get more waves.
