  • There is no way we can figure surfing out on our own. I have benefited hugely from tips I have been given from friends in the water as well as on this message board.


    You can learn a lot by watching others but those simple rules such as "look down the line as you pop up" are what really allow this late bloomer to improve.

  • Martin dunn's videos and instruction are really
    good.  Does surfing better mean you are enjoying
    yourself more?

    well, I suppose that's a personal thing, but to my rationale, why would having a breakthrough/s that you yourself notice be anything but fun? Every time I've seen a friend or acquaintance reach a new level they have looked pretty damn happy to me {I know I am}. Of course there comes a time in one's life when progression is likely slow, and even stop, but at that point, if someone is still surfing at say 80 or so, they are pretty happy to cruise it, I probably will be.
    It's no better to be safe than sorry....

    I know that surfing better always makes me feel better. And regardless of how slow the pace of improvement is, part of the fun for me is simply trying - being out there on the endless learning curve, trying to improve.

  • I for one enjoy being on a learning curve no matter how steep.
