This handy little guide is packed with tips and techniques for the surfing beginner. Clearly the best place to learn to surf is on a board in the ocean but we hope these ideas will give you background on kit, some tips on finding the best places to surf and motivate you to try out new moves. We can’t promise that reading these ideas will turn you into Kelly Slater (though keep practising…) but we do hope you find them entertaining, inspiring and informative.
