Professional surfing has its rules. Just like in any other sport, surfers must know what they can and can't do to beat their opponents and win heats and contests.
Competitive surfing is full of hidden guidelines and directives. Athletes who are new to competitive surfing often make mistakes that cost heats. In the majority of the cases, they are simply too focused on catching waves, and they miss a few basic rules.
One of the worst things that can happen to a pro surfer is to lose a heat due to a naive interference, despite having the highest two-wave score of his man-on-man clash.
The days are shorter, and we are reminded that it's time to start planning our wish lists for Christmas. Are you still out of ideas, for yourself or the surfers in your life? This year, we curated the best and newest surfing must-haves, to give you plenty of inspiration.
We hardly noticed it, but Christmas time is just around the corner, and it's time to please our inner surfer, or favorite surfer, with some extra special gifts.
The Christmas holidays are a welcome excuse to splurge on that wetsuit he or she coveted so much, to put a smile on a surfer's face with an unexpected surf drone or to replace a worn-out surf gear, after a summer of hard work on the water.
