  1. Surfing is one of the most enjoyable sports that is available to all ages, weather you are 70 years old or 7 years of age, all it takes is the ability to swim. Once you go out and catch a wave nothing will be the same, there are a ton of ways to learn many people are learning and continue to progress. When learning need to think about where it is you want to learn, is it beginer friendly, is it beach break or point break? What size surf board, and if taking a lesson how long has your instructor being teaching can he/she even surf. But the most important part is have a great time out in the water.
