Surfing stick figure wipes out.

If you've ever watched surfers ride the waves and wondered if you could learn to do it, you've come to the right place. Don't let the wipe out of my stick figure friend in the headline discourage you. That's just a little joke.

Before you begin, you should learn about the dangers, and how to avoid injury. Surfers take safety seriously. Nobody wants to see a surf board flying in their direction. An ankle leash is a great safety device as well as a great time saver.

As a beginner, you should avoid crowded surfing spots until you develop some control.

Like swimming, surfing entails a certain amount of risk. So, please observe all safety precautions. Of course, it's also important that you be in good health and be a strong swimmer.

Enjoy this site, but don't expect to learn everything here. Take lessons!
