Surfing as a recreational activity to ride on waves toward the shoreline takes skill, stamina, and agility..Surfing The wind comes brushing through the hair, the surfs are up and you are at the verge of the never-ending expense of the ocean. The beaches are filled with activities and adventure sports. Surfing has found a new definition in the sea. The surfers hit the waves early in the morning and are welcomes by the froth of the virgin seas. They take the surfers up and down and just jostle them in their vast embrace. It is no wonder that sipping in the summer sun is one of the most pleasurable pass times.

There are many adventure opportunities these beaches have to give. But the sea is not an easy customer to trade withThe waves can at times be too dangerous and too big. The surfers find it very difficult and sometimes fatal to venture into rough seas. The cost guards as well as the local lifeguards can be seen posted at every beach. This gives the tourists and the people a carefree atmosphere to surf and enjoy the beauty of the sea. Experiences like tsunami may have reduced the number of sea going people but this has in no way reduced the enthusiasm to surf the sea as a recreational activity, sea is still the favorite toy to play with.

SurfingAfter paddling to the point where waves are breaking, a surfer catches a wave and rides it using one of several basic moves. In the bottom turn, a surfer turns the surfboard sharply off the trough at the base of a wave and uses momentum and speed gathered from the wave`s motion to direct the surfboard up the face of the wave-the smooth section below the wave`s white crest. The basic idea behind surfing is to ride the unbroken portion of a wave for as great a distance as possible, using a variety of maneuvers to speed up, slow down, and maneuver around the breaking portion of the wave. Proficient surfers continue to ride until the entire wave has broken and become whitewater.
