    I really want to learn to surf but I always seem to go away when the surf is poor. Not a surfer but would love to be one.

    You probably have half the skills to give it a try when your next near the coast Sapto.
    I was late getting into skiing. Started in 2013 and instantly got on with it. Tackled some red runs on day 3. I put it down to similar balance skills and being committed to the hill, like you need to commit to taking off on a wave.

    Been every year since, usually two trips per season. Love the mountains.
    Off to Chamonix again next Saturday (20th). 3rd trip to Cham. Can’t wait.

    Been surfing on and off for over 40 years...grew up in S Wales, minutes from the beach (not far from Porthcawl). Do a lot more windsurfing now, but since my shoulder repair, have done much more surfing again, including 2 trips to France last year (Lacanau area) in the Cali last year. Love it...and look forward to doing much more in a few months when our latest plan comes to fruition...fingers crossed!

    Good morning all
    I started surfing 7 years ago after a weekend away with a swimming club to Donegal, North West Ireland. I live in Dublin on the East Coast 250kms away....
    Renault Laguna was ok for a while, then I bought a Puegeot Partner which was more suitable for the job and finally I saved up for a Cali....
    Now life is sweet....
    I toured Devon/Cornwall last June for a week.
    Lovely area but Mother Nature did not produce any waves while I was there which was a shame...

    I've never tried surfing but I've taken pics of my daughter SUP surfing (on a stand-up paddleboard) when she comes down to visit - mostly in winter!
