You don't have enough hours is a day as it is, how you gonna find time to learn to surf?  :32:

LOL very true

I just figure dirt bike = 2 hour drive to/from + maintenance

surf = 35 min drive ?

I did a lesson today in malibu! got pretty tired really early until I found the balance point on the board and got relaxed just floating and waiting for waves...

it was tiring, but in a good way...similar to a good dirt bike ride...tires you out and you get a good sleep  :29:

I don't have one for sale but def recommend one of the Costco big foam type long boards for learning.  I've seen them on CL for about $60.  I forget the length but I've had newbies standing up with an hour or less usually.
If you are offended by my posts that's your problem

This.... 8ft soft top is your best bet or I have a vehicle you can borrow, water is now in the 70s. Let me know when you want the surf lessons we spoke of.

That's exactly what I want!

With all sports there's a high priced entry point and low priced entry point the latter being for people who aren't good enough to take advantage of good quality Equipment. It's the equivalent of getting into the sport with a Ninja 250... I did see one go for $60 but it sold quickly so I will just keep looking until I find one and just pick it up fast

Todd I will see you in the surf!

If you come to HB to take lessons from Todd, you're welcome to borrow mine for the day.  I'm right by HB high school so not too far from him/the beach.

stopped at bolsa chica...was $15 to park...so I went to huntington north of the pier and couldn't even get in the water LOL...the breaks were massive, the water was rough, and it came from different directions

went back to seal beach, and bam...finally started standing. stood up 60% of the time, rode the wave to the shore 30-40% of the time

easy way to start - wait for the wave to start crashing, let it "catch" you, then stand up for a glorious 3-5 seconds until you hit the shore or the wave runs out of energy

next stop - surfing an angle to keep going!

I like seal beach!

Pretty easy going waves that break gently...the river jetty gets some good waves too

Surfing most work days are tough....luckily I got off work at 2 yesterday and tried to sneak in some waves afterwards...

I don't start work until 12:30 Monday and I am working in HB... hopefully I can sneak in some waves in the morning!

Today was my first day off in 6 days!

And....no surf...anywhere

Sucky part about surfing is you have to wait for the waves...they don't care when you're off

Ever try paddle boarding?  You don't need waves.

How's that California lifestyle working out for you BD?

LOL

Not bad I usually cycle between two or three girls for dates whenever I am available, then keep swiping right for more recruits

I am also looking to do "the ultimate day" where I surf in the AM, ski by noon, dirt bike ride the desert in the afternoon, then go night clubbing in Vegas by 10
