Surf Tips

With boards larger tan 2,75m one can reach higher speeds and make smoother maneuvers, while with a shortboard (1, 50 to 2,10m) speed is reduced in favor of maneuverability.
While a surfer gains experience he can use a board with a thinner and sharper tip.
A neoprene body suit is the ideal outfit to practice surf as it protects your body from low temperatures, scratches and even hard blows, although one can still fully enjoy the sport on classic boarshorts
Every time you spot a crack on your surf board make sure you repair it. Don’t take this lightly as internal materials are not waterproof and your board might suffer maneuverability loss.
Always keep your board horizontally placed, don’t leave it outside without its cover. It’s best to keep i ton a dry, cool place.
 

Surf Tips

When learning how to surf, practice your arm strokes and foot placing on any surface, on sand, your house rug etc.
To know whenever you have a regular or goofy stance, try placing yourself as if you’re about to begin a race to know what’s your natural posture to propel or hold yourself.
While choosing a wave and rowing towards it, when you notice the wave pulling without the need to row, that’s the moment to stand up in your board.
When standing up, each foot must stay parallel to the other in the center of the board.
Posture is fundamental: Legs bent, back straight, make sure your shoulders are in the same direction as the board and arms forward.
Surf, besides being an aerobic sport, also tones your muscles. It’s a very complete sport.
