5) For the Girl (Or Guys)
Anything that gets popular, is usually followed by impressers, similar to one-uppers. They are active in the sport only for the rewards. Don’t do this. Enjoy the sport for what it is, and the rewards will come.
4) The Hawaiian Shirt
Sure, this shirt has been around for quite some time, but it doesn’t mean that it was ever cool. If you’re Hawaiian maybe, other than that it just looks too American–too touristy.
3) Animal Surfing
This one isn’t too bad for the surfer that knows what he/she is doing. All others, though, need to stay away from this. There are too many people out there trying to include man’s best friend on a not so casual sport–this could be very dangerous.
2) Too Much Gear
Getting into surfing can be somewhat expensive. Most people find a board and other essentials and ride with it. The other, well they gobble as much as possible and flaunt it–nothing looks worse. Decide if you like the sport first, and then, roll with it.
Be prepared. This should be followed with anything in life. When it comes to sport, however, this can make you quickly look like a fool. Do some research on the essential gear, prepare yourself with some lessons and start slow. No need to head to the deep end right away.
