How to Surf for Girls : Surfing & Knowing Where to Paddle Out

Hi I’m Schell Michael, I’m here with Expert
Village and today we’re going to do a series on how to surf. Already, so you go to choose
where you going to paddle out. Sometimes this can be difficult, you just get so excited,
you get to the beach; you want to just run right into the water and start surfing. And
then it happens, you get stuck in kind of little, you don’t really go anywhere. That’s
the worst. That’s where you can waste the most energy. So the best thing is, when you
get to any surf spot, probably watch the surf anywhere from five to fifteen minutes. You
can kind of get an idea about where the other surfers are paddling out. So the best is just
to follow by example. And usually people that have been surfing at certain spots a long
time will know the best way, the easiest way, the safest way, cause you know, they’re going
to want to use that way too. So just watching other surfers or just watching the ocean.
Sometimes you can really tell which way the tides are pulling, which way the current can
be. Usually you want to paddle out in what we called the channel which is a safe spot,
that is either in between breaks, where there is no waves breaking, or to the right or to
the left of a break where its just kind of flat. Most surf spots do have that. There
are some that you kind of got just time it right.

    wow, I needed an "expert" to tell me to go where the other surfers are, or to paddle where the waves aren't breaking.

    why does everyone in this country have to be a smart ass about everyone? Because you can hide behind your keyboard and you don't have to face anyone?

    She's being helpful, if you don't like the lesson, shut your mouth and leave.

    A bunch of little cowards who don't have the guts to talk about someone to their face. She's probably kick your little punk ass.
