Body surfing is more art than sport. Utilizing your balance and technique you ride waves, effortlessly gliding through the ocean. Addictive and fun, it’s easy to start it’s a great hobby. Each year thousands of surfers hit the Australian beaches which provide the best place to surf. Surfing competitions are held in Australia and it’s a hub for water sports.
The open water is not just fun and games as it can get dangerous. First of all you need to be a good swimmer so that even if you have to dive into water you can easily swim ashore. Other than that you need to learn how to ride a wave, how to angle your body so that the alignment is perfect and you can catch the waves rather than collide with them. Hence the safer option is to learn how to surf first rather than going in the open waters.
Swimming and surfing both cannot be self-taught. Most people learn it from their friends which seems beneficial at first but is harmful in the long run. The reason is that amateurs don’t understand the complexity of these sports or the danger which accompanies it. Professional coaches can not only teach you how to swim well but also how to swim safely. Similarly surfing has its hazards such as waves can have a lot of force which is hard to handle for amateurs. The reasons which many swimmers avoid professional coaching are: lack of awareness, lack of time, expense or hesitation.
