The most important thing is to enjoy what you’re doing.
The most important thing is to learn proper etiquette and then enjoy what you’re doing.
Hey Cris, welcome to Jamboards mate.
-pick the right board
-know your limits
-learn some etiquette, and if you have no choice of surfing in a group, don't be afraid to mention "hey, I'm new, yell at me if I get in anyone's way"
-try not to compare yourself to harshly to others, observing their techniques is beneficial but don't expect to be surfing like they are, and like everyone else said, enjoy the ride.
PS, like your training vids
Never pay someone to push you into a wave. You'll learn nothing about the most important aspect of surfing: the ocean.
As an example -
I watched my son play in the "hurricane" surf (it was 3' at best, but don't tell my son) last night. 6 years old. Been at it since he could walk. Not once did he get swept away. Not because of anything I taught him, he has spent enough time in the surf to know when to run. (paddle, pop up, ditch, etc)
Never sell a board for more than what you paid for it.
Dibs are never to be called in uncertainty or jest.
If you end up getting banned for being a flagrantly antagonistic asshole, lay low a few months and then come back under a different name.
You can't request for another board train until you've been either involved in one or have sold a board to a member at an incredible deal.
All free stuff goes to @Tenfooter and all bonzers are to be PM'd to me first, and then made public on the forum.
That's pretty much about it man, welcome and...oh. Oh wait. Shit...
You meant Beginner Surfers in the Water?
I thought you meant Beginner Surfers HERE on the forum.
Really dig what you've accomplished and the message you continue to put out there.
Quality stuff man.
And seriously- PM me any bonzers first. It's just the right thing to do.
Hi Cris, I just viewed your core strength/ flex / pop-up video (from 5 years ago recorded in Oz!) and have to say you are quite the subject matter expert - excellent presentation! You must have studied physio - kinesiology. Like your attitude/ delivery. Hope all your hard work on social media is paying off.
Just like life, give respect get respect.
Cover your head/face when you wipe out and don't stop until you know where your board is.
