First off, let’s talk about the obvious. Surfing is fucking cool. Geddon, have you ever seen a veteran surfer ride a wave? It’s like watching poetry in motion. The way they glide across the water with effortless grace and style is just plain sexy. And let’s not forget about the wetsuits. If you think you look good in your Sunday best, try wearing a suit made of neoprene and see how badass you feel.
But surfing is not just about looking cool, no no. It’s about feeling cool. When you’re out there in the water, catching waves and feeling the power of the ocean beneath you, you feel like a goddamn superhero. All your problems and worries disappear and all that matters is the next wave. And let us tell you, there’s nothing more exhilarating than catching a wave and riding it all the way in (to no doubt massive applause from every one stuffing sandy pasties in their mouths) .
Now, we know what you’re thinking. “But surfing is so hard! I could never do it.” Bullshit. Anyone can surf. For sure, it takes some practice and patience, but once you get the hang of it, it’s like riding a bike. And let’s face it, if a bunch of stoned-out hippies in the 60’s and 70’s could do it, so can you.
And don’t even get us started on the physical benefits of surfing. It’s a full-body workout that will leave you feeling exhausted and invigorated all at the same time. Not to mention the fact that you’ll be getting a sexy AF face-tan (do use high spf suncream though) and some seriously toned abs. Who needs a gym when you’ve got the sea?
But the best part about surfing? The community. Surfers are some of the coolest, most laid-back legends you’ll ever meet. They’re always down for a good time and never take themselves too seriously. And let’s not forget about the lingo. Surfers have their own language that’s equal parts confusing and hilarious. Who doesn’t want to say “gnarly” and “stoked” on a regular basis?
So there you have it, folks. Surfing is the ultimate sport for anyone who wants to feel awesome. It’s cool, it’s fun, it’s challenging, and it’s a great way to meet some awesome people. So, if you’re feeling down, and there’s not a freaking hurricane going on, grab a board and hit the waves. Trust us, you won’t regret it.
But before you go, a word of warning. Surfing is not for the faint of heart. You’re going to fall, a lot, you’re going to get smashed by waves, and you’re going to swallow a shit-ton of saltwater. But that’s all part of the fun. Yummy. So if you’re ready to embrace the awesomeness that is surfing, grab a board, wax it up, and hit the waves. And who knows? Maybe one day you’ll be one of those badass veteran surfers that everyone looks up to, maybe you’ll get a solid nickname like ‘wavehumper’ or ‘Crazy Mary’. Or maybe you’ll just be a kook who can barely stand up on a board. Either way, you’ll still be awesome in our book.
