Catchin Surf

If you don’t have your own surfboard and want to ride the waves then you can hire surf boards from surf board shops in the area, they generally have deals going to encourage tourists to give the sport a go and the lease of a board can range from just day hire which is more expensive to a hire that lasts for the entire length of your holiday.
If you live in the area and just want to give it a try then the best bet is to get a few lessons on their boards and hire it out for a couple of days until you see whether you like it or not, surfing s one if those things that either catches your soul or you don’t see the big fuss, it is not really something people are so so about. If the bug has bitten then it would be wiser to save up for your own board, than wasting cash on hiring all the time. If you love the surf but only get to it once or twice a year then hiring is the way to go until you can get yourself in a position to be closer to the waves.
The hiring option gives you greater flexibility in the boards you choose to ride, for beginners they have the soft top boards and for the more experienced rider long boards or short depending on which you find better for your experience and ride. A surfboard can be the extension of a true surfer and so should not be decided upon lightly, the hiring option gives you some time to experience different boards and how they glide, which suits you the best and it may even be a case of there being several that you like the feel of and it depends on the day and the surf which one you want to take to the water.

There are some rues that need to be observed out beyond the break and it is always a good idea to stay on the good side of the local wave riders, they will look out for you if you treat them right and will give you tips on how to improve, if not you might find your board cut loose and yourself shoved in the waves, possible surfed over a couple of times and an accidental elbow here and there, they are a tight knit community and don’t like to be disrespected by tourists on their water.
