History of Surfing
Surfing is one of the oldest practiced recreational activities in the world.

 

AGE Since this sport obviously requires a lot of patience so it is important that your child be at least the age of nine or ten before beginning to surf
LESSONS Surf lessons are available in many countries through surf shops or independent companies. You can either take group lessons or private lessons.  Lessons can be one, two or three hours.  It will cost approximately $55 or $60 per hour for group lessons and $80 - $90 per hour for private lessons.
BOARD As a beginner, you need a long, thick, wide board. The objective is to get something that will easily allow you to catch waves and be stable and forgiving when you are learning to stand.  In addition to your board you're going to need some wax, A leash and something to wear.
WETSUIT In many locations a wetsuit is a required piece of equipment for surfing. A wetsuit is a snug fitting neoprene rubber suit designed to insulate you in cold waters.  Depending on the temperature and condition of the water, you may consider a hood, gloves, and/or booties.  Remember that your body cools much faster in water than it does in the air so keep your head and body warm!  There are a variety of styles of wetsuits to choose from and it really depends on when and where you will use it as to what you should buy. 
LEASHES Leashes keep your board attached to you. The rule of thumb is that you leash should be at least the length of your board or slightly bigger.  Leash will cost approximately $20 - $25.
