I was in Maui and took surf lessons in February and was able to stand on day 1. I then hired the guide for private lessons the nest 2 days. I was a rockstar.

I bought a board in April and stored in So Cal at my Dads. I have been 7 days since and have not done near as well.

The waves in So Cal have been much larger and faster, plus my board is not the cayak that I had in Maui.

Next week I will be on my board for at least 6 days. San O!!!!

Anyone else surf waves on this board? I can snowboard down just about anything.

I flew down and stayed with my dad in Tampa, FL back in 04. We drove down to Cocoa beach and I signed up for 2 day lessons. I didn't have much trouble popping up and canceled the day 2.
Riding my first wave all the way to the shore was one of the greatest feelings I've ever had.
We then drove further down to Sebastian Inlet where the waves were PERFECT -- consistent 5+ ft face waves.
I've been two other times since then and am planning for another trip next summer.

Point Break is great, but North Shore is better.

BS

I paddled through the 4-6 swell that roared through So Cal in early August.

Didn't catch many but most who I spoke with (not much conversation on the line) were shocked that I was a beginner out at the swell.

When I learned to snowboard my theory was to go as steep as possible. I will ride down any slope on your next visit to Cal (I live in the No slopes, not South.)

Also, when I was a bra and lived in Hawaii from 88 - 91 I was not a kook.

Mavericks? Are you kidding me? Those are 25+.

I learned in Maui on 1-2 foot waves on a kayak (surf board with a sprayed on coating.) It was the coolest feeling to ride though.

I slalom waterski pretty well and snowboard down the the blackest of blacks.

The surf feeling is cooler than I have felt on the others (even at 1 -4 feet)

I'm not a good surfer by any stretch, but a few friends and I used to spend a lot of time making the effort in Southern California back in the day. Having been raised in Kansas, I have always been enamored by the ocean. Had a Golden Lab named Barney who could surf, too. Good times. Very good times.

When I moved East, I stopped by my mom's place in Kansas and parked my surfboard by leaning it against the wall on her front porch. One of my mother's acquaintances (a local farmer and dairyman) dropped by her house one day and said, "What the heck is that thing out there by the door?" After I explained it to him, he just looked sort of sad and confused.

Can anybody illustrate the difference in regular surfing and windsurfing? Windsurfing looks more my style and that you can 'stay up' longer. It's got to be a pain in the ass swimming all the way out there, getting a wave, and then falling off your board so quickly.

So do we have a windsurfer here?

A message board that caters to mid-western sports is kind of an odd place to be looking for surfers.

Just sayin'

There's no water in the mid-west?...hmmm

Though I haven't ocean surfed in a few years I started wake surfing and it's an absolute blast....and yes...it is surfing...it's riding wave...:-)

Yep. Been surfing for the better part of 20 years now. I have several boards ranging from 5' 8" - 12'. Some are singles, twins, and thrusters with various levels of rocker, types of tails and noses. Living on the upper Texas coast, it has some challenges with consistency, but there is plenty of surf throughout the year - especially in spring and fall. Longboards work best this time of year, unless you have storm swells. Also make trips to down to Port Isabell on a regular basis as well as West coast trips mostly to Newport, Hunington, San Diego. I've been to the Carolina's and Florida once or twice. I've never been to Hawaii.

I absolutely love surfing and have form the second I learnd back in high school. God willing, I'll be able to do it for the rest of my life!

My replaced knees won't allow me the speed to stand on a board any longer. But I can still body surf with the best of them. And yes we do have good waves in NJ. I was at Sebastian Inlet last week,no good waves,and sharks pass in front and back of you. On the East coast it all depends on the winds and where the storms are.

It is a national board and waves flow on both coast. Your avitar "Bada Bing" is likely from from NJ.

You are right though. Not many surfers here.

I waterski with a group in San Mateo who have competed nationally. They frequently comment on how they need to recruit.

The sports are a changing.

I'm just an ex-surfer. Grew up surfing California, moved to Hawaii, ended up with my own point break in the BVI (had the only surfboard on the Island). After all that, just lost the itch....
