HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF SURFING?
Surfing can mean plenty of different things for everyone. Almost everyone can define surfing in their own words and it can also affect them differently. But when it comes to knowing the benefits of surfing is there any and how much do you know them?
Let's talk about knowing surfing a little more today.
We have all heard that surfing is an amazing discipline to learn, and the sentence "only the surfers knows the feeling" comes to mind. But where is this coming from and what is this hype all about? Surfing is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world, but again, what is it about this sport that everyone is talking about?
After nearly 40 years of surfing, I have an explanation on why surfing brings up such positive emotions in people. Just look at the wide range and ever-expanding community of surfing. No matter the age, the size, the body type, and even geological location, you can most definitely find someone who is either in love with surfing or who is passionate about learning the sport.
This is rooted in the fact that surfing forces you out of your comfort zone. Think about it, when you are out of your comfort zone, you can't expect to rely on your usual skill set to overcome new challenges (balancing, not being comfortable in water, being intimidated by other people in the water with you... the list goes on).
So, surfing forces you to dig down deep, and find a new set of skills, that's very different than what you use in your day-to-day life, and that you probably didn't even know you had.
And you know what the result of this is? It's a huge boost in confidence, that overflows into your day-to-day life.
Now the next time someone asks you why you love surfing, you can either say this or you can explain what it means for you. At the end of the day, we are still connected in this challenging and positive community that brings an ocean of learnings that we will bring every day.
