Learn where to surf, when to surf, and how to surf safely. Discover the foundations such as choosing the correct equipment, essential to make any progress as a beginner; pre-surf preparation, including tips and advice on getting fit; and your first surfer steps on the beach and in the ocean. All of this leads you to catching your first wave and inevitably catching the surfing bug.

Full colour photo sequences of professional surfers, plus easy to follow instructions, show you exactly what to do – and inspire you to get it right.
