We got picked up by our hotel and they drove us to a beach which was supposedly 12km long, which is impressive!! We got our surfboards and wetsuits and then the beginners including myself got to learn the first steps of surfing. Ive seen videos of people surfing and i know its tough, definitely not something you pick up in an hour or two but it would have been fun to be able to stand on the board for more than 0,5 second at a time. I spent more time in the water, or underwater than on the actual surfboard!! There is alot of technique involved and i think it takes more than 90 minutes to learn it. At times i felt discouraged because it didnt go well at all and other times it was alot of fun, even if i didnt manage to stand on the board. But it was fun to try something new and different, not sure if its my type of sport but i am definitely willing to try it again. I mean i can only get better right?
Have any of you tried surfing? What did you think, did you like it? :)
