I’ve tried many things, but nothing is as exhilarating as bodysurfing.

Mastering your wave, while connecting with the ocean is one of the best feelings you can ever have.

Body Surfing is also a good physical and mental exercise. Surfing is just about improving yourself and seeing more of the world. I bet you can’t compare bodysurfing to the gym, right?

There are a number of destinations all over the world to help you learn how to surf. As a student, visiting these places will definitely be a great adventure for you. Starting from the sea sides in the UK to some of the best Asian destinations in the world.  Not to forget Australia, the beautiful and unique continent.
