Do you know how to surf?
I don't know how. I'm sure I wouldn't have the strength, agility or balance. But, when I was in Florida last month, I loved *watching* the surfers. They are awesome!
Tressles, T street, the Wedge, Salt Creek, Doheny (before they built the marina) and for body surfing I always preferred Boomers in SD. Can't surf anymore, knees replaced, no balance but I do body surf when I get out to the coast 3-4 times a year.
I want to learn
Why did I start hearing "Surfing USA" when I read this poll?
Yup! Not very good at it but the few times I was successful it was amazing!
Why yes, yes I do. I grew up in SoCal.
Woo hoo! Do you have a favorite spot?
Besides Venice where I live, I really like Newport and San Clemente
I liked those spots, too. Sunset & Huntington were my favorites, they were closest.
Huntington has been too packed with shoobies every time I've gone. I need to go there in the winter
Definitely the better time to go. I like Sunset because it's so quiet, pretty much year round. Longboard?
No those are too big for me haha. I learned how to surf on one of those, though. I prefer shortboards.
You're braver than I am. I tried the short board and went right back to the long. I used to have a 9 foot Harbour board that I just loved!
It took me a while to be able to ride any kind of board. Haha. But I've been surfing since I was really little. It's a requirement in my family haha. I'm currently riding a 6'2" epoxy pin tail board. I love it
Nice! My folks aren't beach people, but my brothers & I all are. We used to get up together in the morning & go. Now we're grown, mostly married with kids, and live out of state. I like to come home. I taught my 8 yr old how to body surf last time.
My brother and I both still live with our dad who also grew up surfing here. Who knows where I'll go after college but I'll need to be on the coast
Never been around an ocean long enough to learn
Only on the Internet.
Yes, but where it's really at is skimboarding.
Skimming is fun
Just doesn't give me the same rush tho
