OVERVIEW

An introductory guide to surfing, body-boarding, and body-surfing. Surfing is an exhilarating sport, but it's difficult and dangerous to learn, unless you're well-informed, prepared, and respectful of the ocean's powers.

"Learn to Surf" is a rambunctious introductory guide to the sport that teaches the fundamentals of surfing with detailed, step-by-step instructions for the complete beginner.

Covering three types of surfing - traditional surfing, bodyboarding, and body surfing - James MacLaren provides vital information on equipment, techniques, wave and wind dynamics, and safety.

Also included are a chapter on surfing etiquette and even a glossary of surfing lingo - everything required to get you out in the water and up on a surfboard and back to the beach in one piece.
