How I Got Started With Surfing

When I started this blog, I decided not to post just about virtualization but also about my personal life and the things which belong to it. As some of you might already know, I am a big fan of surfing and try to watch every tournament and practice whenever possible. I started surfing in October 2013 when my friend Jeremy Sallee, a UI/UX designer, introduced me to the sport. Since then I have been out in the water almost every weekend. My first session ever has been at Linda Mar Beach in Pacifica,CA with 6ft waves. I can tell you, that’s not the best condition for a noob who doesn’t know what he’s doing out there in the water.

Currently I ride a 8ft longboard with a 3-fin setup. The length of the board provides the stability of a typical longboard and the 3-fin setup allows easier and quicker turns like on a shortboard. After almost one year of surfing, I start to feel comfortable taking 5-6ft waves with my board. However, later this year, I plan a transition to a shorter, egg shaped, board.

Two weeks ago, I went out for another session at Linda Mar Beach in Pacifica, CA. The day started out perfect with some great breakfast and then a good 2.5h session in the water. I caught some nice 2-5ft waves and luckily, I recorded some of my experience with a GoPro.
