So you've decided to take up surfing. Unless you're a freak of nature in the water like Kelly Slater or know someone with the patience of a saint to teach you the essentials then you're going to want a few lessons to get started. 

The sunshine coast has a great selection of schools to choose from. There's options for all ages and skill levels with group sessions plus one-one coaching available through most schools.

When it comes to getting a surfboard to learn on size does matter. The general rule is the bigger, the better. The reason for this is essentially buoyancy and stability. Greater buoyancy allows you to paddle & catch a wave with less physical exertion meaning you not only catch a wave earlier resulting in a safer take-off but you have more energy to push up in one fluid motion. Once you're up having a larger board under your feet means you don't need to have your weight perfectly balanced because there's enough buoyancy to counter your misplaced weight. Most surf schools carry foam learner boards from 6ft6 up to 10ft in length. De...

Choosing one can leave your head spinning so we're here to walk you through some of the basics as well as our top picks.

If you ever owned one of the first generation Ripcurl E-bombs you'll know what we mean.


The thickness of your wetty will determine not just the warmth but also t...
