For lovers of the sea and waves
Surfing is surfing the waves on a surfboard and without the use of a sail, but only with the power of your body and nature. Surfing is one of the older sports. It originates from Polynesia, where it appeared soon after the beginning of our count. From there, it spread to Hawaii and later around the world. At the end of the 1990s, it also came to Slovenia. Learning to surf is a rather time-consuming process – mainly because we have to go quite far from Slovenia for the activity. There are no conditions in our vicinity to be able to surf every day. In addition to the technique, it is necessary to acquire some other knowledge that helps to move more safely in the sea, choose the right conditions, knowledge of the weather… Surfing is best learned in a surfing school or go on a surfing vacation.
