Surfing Beyond Horizons: Unleashing Your Passion Inland

Surfing Beyond Horizons: Unleashing Your Passion Inland

If, like me, you grew up living far from the coast, dreams of being a surfer can feel like a distant fantasy. The mesmerizing way surfers dance across their boards captivated my heart and soul since I was a child, hampered only by my proximity (or lack thereof) to the ocean

It’s now, as someone that came to surfing as an adult that I realize how many ways there are to build your surfing skills whilst still living far from the coast. The dream may seem distant, but this guide aims to bridge the gap between your wave-chasing aspirations and your current reality. Written by Emma from www.noseridersurf.com

Dive into Surfing’s Rich Culture

Whether you’re a city dweller yearning for an escape or someone inspired by a captivating surfing documentary, I find the best way to learn is from the experience of others. Dedicate time to immersing yourself in surf videos, learning to read the ocean, delving into the culture, acquainting yourself with the unique language, and closely observing the maneuvers of seasoned professionals.

 

Take a deep dive into the history of surfing, unraveling its evolution and gaining insights into the influential figures who have significantly shaped the sport as well as its rising stars changing the game. Acknowledge the importance of surf etiquette – the unspoken rules that govern the waves and contribute to a harmonious surfing experience. By absorbing this wealth of knowledge, you not only elevate your comprehension of surfing but also foster a profound appreciation for the sport’s rich heritage.
