Why Surf!!? Here's 5 reason... #surfandskate Portugal

Updated: Apr 30, 2022

1. Surfing is great exercise kiddos:

You want to use every single muscle in your body in ways you never felt before? Feel completely in your own skin, well then yes, this is for you. Your heart and lungs will benefit from this aerobic exercise. The good news is that surfing is so enjoyable that you will never feel like you are working out... until the next day that is!

2. Great way to meet/make friends if travelling alone.

Learning to surf with your loved ones is an experience that creates special bonds. Surf camps offer group surf classes where you get to train with experienced surfers and have fun while learning a new skill and meeting new people. Lessons vary based on surf level, so you can also move on to higher level lessons as you learn to surf. But most importantly you are in a safe space which we welcome you to come to on your own or with others.

3. Increase confidence by learning something new!

Surfing is about learning so much more than just how to catch a wave. You will learn about yourself, your ability, and your determination. This increased sense of self and your ability to succeed is the beginning of your overall belief you can achieve. Winning. Celebrating the small victories is a great way to build confidence and feel good about about yourself.

As you learn how to surf, you’ll feel self-satisfaction as you persevere through challenging surf sessions. You’ll also fee a part of the community as you gain experience and even form bonds with other surfers.

Surfing is an individual sport, which means it’s just you and the wave. Its a meditation and even therapy for some, as you natural element, a wave. Some see it as an opportunity to do something outside of their comfort zones and an opportunity to conquer fears. Depending on how it turns out for you, surfing will be much more than just catching a wave.

4. Salt water is brilliant for your skin!

OK, so its long been thought sea frolicking has health benefits. Significant amounts of minerals, including sodium, chloride, sulphate, magnesium and calcium makes its superiorly useful for skin conditions such as psoriasis. Ocean water can be considered an antiseptic, meaning it may have wound-healing properties, but that isn't an invitation to go swimming with open wounds ya'll! And finally, because seawater is cleansing and mimics the body’s own fluids in the lining of the airways, it doesn’t irritate them - meaning hay fever and sinus infections can benefit from a bit of falling off your board and flushing that nose with a ton of sea water - WHICH WILL HAPPEN BAES!


No explanation needed.
