Surfing can be a challenging sport. Some say it’s just like snowboarding but this is not quite true as the ocean is fluid while snow is essentially water in solid form. However, being able to snowboard or skateboard and having a good sense of balance is a definite bonus. We also find that people who do sports such as yoga, gymnastics and pilates. have a good sense of balance and an added advantage. But surfing is a test of wills and as much of a mental sport as it is physical. An attitude of ‘I can do it’ and ‘I won’t give up’ is a great ally when you start to learn how to surf.
