We sat down with a local surfer and all round legend, Benj, to see if SpaceDraft could be used as a Beginner’s Guide to Surfing. This is what we came up with.
For many aspirational surfers, preparation for your first surfing session can be a confusing and daunting experience.
There’s a right way to partake as a beginner, all while staying safe and not pissing people off. It involves surfing in the right places for your skill level, choosing the proper equipment, being respectful of locals and knowing the rules of the water.
SpaceDraft’s ‘Beginner’s Guide to Surfing’ teaches surfers the fundamentals of surfing before their board even touches the water, giving learner surfers the opportunity to paddle out safely and with confidence
