 Surfing for Kids

 

 

 

 

Surfing is the sport of riding on the crest or along the tunnel of a wave, especially while standing, kneeling or lying on a surfboard.  There are three major types of surfing: body boarding: Malibu surfing and kneeboarding.

 

Body surfing, where the surfers lie on boards made from lightweight foam about three feet in length and ride the waves, is very common with young children.

 

 

Malibu surfing is the second type, which is the typical image of surfing that you have, and it involves the surfers lying down on a fiberglass board using their arms to paddle and catch a wave. Once they catch a wave, the surfer stands on the board and rides along the wave. 

 

 

Kneeboarding, is where surfers ride a specialized small board on their knees, they must stay in a compact and stable position so they do not fall off.

 

Although the styles differ they all require the same skill set, determination and rules to follow in order to participate in the sport.

 

 
The Surfers Code

by Shaun Tomson
 

Never turn your back on the ocean

Always paddle back out

Take the drop with commitment

Know that there will always be another wave

Realize that all surfers are joined by one ocean

Paddle around the impact zone

Never fight a rip tide

Watch out for other surfers after a big set

Pass on my stoke to a non-surfer

Ride and not paddle in to shore

Catch a wave every day, even in my mind

Honor the sport of kings
