First time ever surfing on the East Coast. First all alone session. First time completely cold feet. Rockaway beach – still stoked when I think about that day.
When there’s no ocean around a local lake will do. This sunset paddling session was awesome!
No problem with gaining speed and catching a wave but poor balance while paddling and not getting what sea is saying to me – these are the most important conclusions from my Hel peninsula surf trip.
All you need is an idea and a photographer who feels it.
No gym, no heavy weights. Just 15-30 minutes and a space where you can easily lay down. That’s my surfing power routine.
Funny thing. When I first saw the bold design of Hurley wetsuits I didn’t like it at all. Now I owe one and I love it. Here’s a spontaneous photo session just after buying my Hurley Fusion 302.
The best way to buy a wetsuit is to go to a surf shop. But what if your nearest surf shop is about thousand miles away? You can wait to your next surf trip or you can take the risk and buy your piece of rubber online. How to do it successfully? Here are my tips.
I wouldn’t be myself if I had focused only on the functional properties when choosing the perfect suit. Of course, of course they are crucial for the performance. But maybe, maybe… the style and design factor is important too? Of course it is! Having this in mind I prepared my list of the most stylish wetsuits, which I’m planning to take a closer look on.
The first day, the first surfing lesson. It was raining, people fled from the beach. The conditions were rough. I had one thought (appart from “these waves look too big” and “I hope I won’t drown the first day”) – to find myself out the back. Me, a total novice, I want to be there – close to those for whom catching a wave is something natural as breathing.
