After a long week of what seemed like nonstop wind, rain, and moodiness from the coast, we arrived to the beach STOKED Saturday morning to not a single cloud in the sky.
It was a great morning with plenty of waves.
We partnered with a local non profit Surfers Unite Rotarian Fellowship to put on a learn-to-surf event for their members. Even with some extra wave size on the outside, there was plenty of whitewater to get some new surfers on their first wave!
This particular group was a worldwide representation of Rotarians from several countries, including Australia and Canada.
Kieran prepares his GoPro for a surf session on a new Degree 33 Ultimate. With the recent run of waves, it was the perfect day to push some of our more "user-friendly" models to the test of some wave power. Kieran took out several models from the Ultimate, Easy Rider, and the Poacher, and it looks like he had some fun with it.
Kieran takes off on a solid set wave riding a new 8’ Ultimate epoxy Longboard.
We had an amazing group of volunteers helping new surfers get stoked. Thanks to our ambassadors, friends and family who came out and made this day a great one!
Everyone knows how to paddle their surfboard, right? Well it is one thing to paddle and it is a whole other thing to paddle effectively. In fact proper paddling technique is one of the quickest ways to become a better surfer. Paddling correctly can help you move faster with less fatigue, catch more waves, surf longer, and be more comfortable in the water. Plus, when you’re catching more waves, that’s more opportunity to improve your surfing!
There are literally hundreds of different brands of surf accessories out there but there really is only a short list of items you need to go surfing. This is one of the most amazing elements of surfing is the simplicity of the lifestyle. Basically a board and you and you are all set but there are a few things you want to have ready before you paddle out.
