Since Hawaiians introduced the world to surfing, people have always cherished this exhilarating summer pastime. Probably because the entry-level is pretty low compared to other watersports, and there are enough waves for everyone.
In this blog, we share all the overlooked surfing spots in the UK and beyond. Along with some valuable information about surfing and it’s two siblings; kitesurfing and windsurfing. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s inside.
The Beginner’s Guide to Surfing
There are a lot of things to consider when getting into surfing. The most important thing you should not skip is training. Signup to a reputable watersports school to get a feel of what to expect in your new-found hobby. There, instructors will share their experience and get you riding waves in no time. They will also help you find the right board for your expertise level and bodyweight. And if you are lucky, they might even point you to some fantastic deals.
The Best Surfing Spots in the UK
There are hundreds of surfing spots dotted across the 11000 kilometres of England’s coastline. Some are labelled as beginner-friendly because of their sandy floors and somewhat gentle waves. Others are excellent spots for intermediate surfers who have enough command on their boards to join crowded lineups. And the remaining few are for experts who take the sport seriously. We’re talking about 30-foot waves, rocky ocean floors and strong winds; a combination which scares even the most experienced surfers.
Windsurfing and Kitesurfing
We also touch on windsurfing and kite surfing in this blog, simply because those two are upgrades to regular surfing. Anybody who can glide on a board can learn either one of them in less than a day. But, both kitesurfing and windsurfing come with extra costs, as you will need additional equipment and more hours in training.
