The best way to check the surf is to wake up very early in the morning and look at it in person. If you can’t look at the ocean physically the next best option is to go online and visit either surf line or surf news network to look at 1 of their a surf cams. I personally like the surf line surf cams better but the surf report from surf news network is more accurate. So your best bet is to check them both.
How to stand up on the surfboard, can be one of the most intimidating parts of learning how to surf. The big secret in knowing how to stand up on a surfboard is to know that you don’t have to stand up on the surfboard, to ride a wave. The Secret is to paddling to the wave and catch the wave on your stomach 1st gaining control of the board with your hands on either side and continuing to control the board with your hands as you step light as a cat into position pivoting sideways looking and keeping the hands low.
Admittedly the video above is not standing up on surfboard but we figure if this guy can stand up on a slack line then you can’t be that hard to stand up on a surfboard after all.
