It almost impossible to talk about surfing without thinking about the beach with waves. One of the challenge right before start your surfing lesson is that, the beach that is close to you may have no waves at all. I mean, it is always pretty much calming the whole year and the required beach you have in mind is far than you think.
So, will you keep on doing surfing? Will you keep on motivating to start to learn about it ever since one of the most important thing in surfing is the waves?
Through this post, I will let you know why beach with no waves won’t be an issue for your surfing learning process and how you can still start your own lesson and practice no matter there will be a single wave or not.
1. Start practicing paddling with your surfboard
So, you have been got your surfboard before, right? And if the beach can’t really be your favorite one because of the wave, then you can start your paddling lesson. At least, it will be your way how to practice balancing your body on the surfboard and it will also brings the good benefits for yourself.
Paddling will be strengthening your muscles especially the back strength and the shoulders while it will also helpful in controlling your body on the surfboard as it is important in surfing.
This will also a way for surfing itself to be enjoyed by the others even though they will only start to learn about it at the lake or big river with no stream. Because surfing itself should never be at the beach forever.
2. Bodyboarding is also important in surfing and is interesting to try
If surfing will mostly allow the surfers to balance their self on the surfboard, bodyboarding is allowing them to lay their body down and toward the board while searching the perfect curl waves that are carrying the surfers to the shore.
Bodyboarding itself perhaps the oldest form of surf riding and you will love it because you will get more things you can do while being at the beach with perfect waves one day. And just the same with paddling, bodyboarding is also the alternatives when you want to experience more fun exercises on your board.
The different of bodyboarding at the flat beach with no wave is, you will only try to swim around while waving your hands back and forth as well as your legs if possible to working out your hands and legs and make you ready for surfing since it all totally body workout.
3. Learn to balancing yourself on a surfboard
I have said that before that paddling can be helpful in balancing your body on the surfboard. But now, you are going to do it without any paddle. Simply just you and your board to test and learn how to balance.
Doing this is important ever since keep you stand on the surfboard when there will be the waves is even get more challenging. So, why not starting controlling yourself at the beach with no waves first?
