I have put together three easy lessons that should make your first paddle out, or maybe your second attempt out, much easier. 1st Lesson- Board Positioning A common mistake that I see a lot of beginners do is lay on top of their board either too far back or to far forward. It really is a subtle balancing act when you lay on your surfboard. If you are too far up on the board you will pearl the nose under water and possibly end up sliding off across the front of the board. What 's far more common is for newbies to position themselves too far back which allows them to paddle in the water okay, but they will never catch a wave and the board will end up getting away from them.
When I was asleep I had a dream about being at the beach with my friends and we were all surfing and having a good time. I noticed behind the waves that were crashing, there was a big wave coming into shore. I wanted to catch the wave badly as it was the biggest one of the day. I started paddling on my boarding, then suddenly I felt the momentum of the wave carry me. I stood up on my board and pulled into the barrel, then suddenly I woke up.
. . ? I couldn’t worry about that, the wave was approaching too fast. I jumped off the sheet of metal and started swimming.
Falling Into a Swamp One bright and sunny day I had to go to school in first grade like normal and I couldn't wait to go home and play in the snow. The day went by in a flash, when school was over my dad picked me up and I told him about school and went home when we got home I asked my dad if I could play outside but he told me to put on my pink puffy jacket . My dog Norton was outside with me and my dad went inside and went on his computer in the backroom. I didn't know how to swim. I thought that it would be a good idea to walk around the little edge of my 8 foot pool.
Two boys were just boogie boarding and they didn’t notice how far they were from shore, and they ended up getting stuck in a riptide. The mom of the boys didn’t notice until she saw many people out in the ocean trying to help them. Dozens of people linked arms, and tried to grab the two boys. All of the sudden more people noticed what they were doing, and offered to help. After an hour, they eventually got the two boys safe and back to shore.
The ocean were so calm, it barely moving my boat. It was peaceful and relaxing as I enjoyed my morning fishing. I tightly squeezed my eyes as I hooked the last bait and casted the line. I gently placed the rod against the side to catch one more fish before heading home. The boat was showered with warmth and sunshine.
This accident has affected my life because it has taught me to not take any days for granted and to enjoy every moment of my life. After seeing my sister fly into the seat, I also realized how her life could hang ended in that moment. Now I always say I love you before I leave the house or get on an airplane because I know that something tragic can happen at any time. In conclusion, although nothing that extreme happened and everyone ended up being okay, this experience taught me so much about life and what it means, and has changed me as a person in the best way
I am a short, skinny boy with blue eyes and brown scruffy hair. I also am terrified of fish. I know you'll think it's stupid, but I'm not scared of anything but fish. Their creepy little fins and slimy scales scare me so much. I love swimming except if I see a fish; then I'll be the first person out the water.
Sometimes the hardest thing for beginning surfers is the initial embarrassment of not being good at the sport. Keep in mind that all good surfers had to start on the bottom rung, just like you. I do not know a single soul who paddled into the water for the first time and did not feel defeated and just plain bad about his or her ability. There is a steep learning curve, and the first month can be painful both physically and mentally, but remind yourself that everyone goes through it. You can not get better unless you experience being bad.
