I’ve always been envious of people who learned to surf as a kid; there are so many benefits to learning young. Kids are light, really light, meaning they can take more waves than everyone else, and manoeuvre around on a one or two foot wave in a way that most people can only dream of. And [...]

For someone who grew up inland with no exposure to the ocean, I wasn’t a likely candidate to get hooked on surfing. But when it hit me, it literally changed my life. I’d always been fascinated by the sea, yet not brave enough to actually get in. I could swim, but the ocean seemed so vast [...]

The simple answer, and it’s good news, is yes. As someone who took up surfing at 36, and has improved dramatically in 4 years, I’m proof that you can too. It may sound clichéd but when Mark Twain said that ‘age is an issue of mind over matter’ he was absolutely right. Age really is just [...]
