Get stoked go surfing
The pure stoke! There’s really no other feeling I have ever experienced that is like being out in the sea, catching waves. Whether shortboarding or longboarding, or even riding a SUP or a bodyboard, nothing prepares you for the beauty of wave riding. Firstly, there’s the thrill of taking off on a big wave on your board with no expectations of how it will feel or what will happen. This gives you a certain kind of freedom and at the same time a pure adrenalin rush. And then there’s the glide, otherwise known as longboarding – selecting a small wave that peels perfectly over a sandbar, seemingly never ending as you ride with the rhythm of the sea. Body boarding and body surfing can be like this too, but you’re so much closer to the energy of the wave, with less volume underneath you as you glide along the energy vortex. Whatever form of surfing you take up you are sure to be stoked!
