Top Things You Need To Know Before Going Surfing

Surfing is among the top activities people try out while on a Hawaii vacation. It's a lot of fun and a great way to stay active. If you're interested in trying surfing, here are some things you need to know before starting your first lesson.

Having basic swimming skills are important to have when attempting to surf - You don't have to be a pro-swimmer but having a certain level of swimming ability is important when surfing. If you were to fall off your board, you should be capable of swimming back to the beach if necessary. Being able to float and tread water is also important.

Don't surf alone - When you're still learning to surf, it's best to go with an experienced friend to teach you or sign up for a surfing lesson.

Respect the ocean - If there are lifeguards around check with them to make sure the conditions are safe before you head out. Surfing is fun but it can also become dangerous if you're not experienced yet to handle the waves. If there is no lifeguard on duty, it's probably best not to try surfing for the first time.

It's okay if you don't catch a wave first time - Surfing is not an easy sport and no wave is ever the same. Ocean and weather conditions also change often so all these could be a factor in being able to catch a wave. The important thing is to have fun and enjoy the experience.
