Have you ever tried to surf before?
I have, and it's not gone very well. However, one of our goals this year was to learn to surf.
And guess what?
We finally did!
This is a compilation of what it was like for Stella and I to learn how to surf. We had an excellent instructor and that made all the difference.
Surfing is a humbling sport.
You don't need much equipment, but you do need lots of perseverance and patience. In my opinion, you also need a mentor or guide if you want to cement the proper technique and actually get up on your board consistently.
Here's a glimpse into our experiences learning to surf with Salem at Onaka. Definitely check them out if you are in Hendaye and wanting to learn how to surf. As always, try to support local.
Stella & I like to travel. Are you ready to join us? We'll explore new places and foods and improve our French, Japanese and Spanish. We're excited to share what we learn and help to make young travellers even more trip savvy. Are you ready for an adventure?
