  • Sæt dig ind i ”code of conduct” for surfere. Indenfor surfverdenen er der både uskrevne som skrevne, og af hensyn til sikkerheden anbefaler vi, at du sætter dig ind i dem, så du er godt klædt på til at surfe. 
  • Find en surfskole - på den måde kan du få det rigtige udstyr samt introduktionstimer til surfing.
