Surf trip description:

I wanted to share my impressions of the surf lessons that I took. I’m not a young man who has been held for 40 years, who has been working college essay writing service for several years and never interested in anything else. But last year I wanted extreme, and I chose to surf! 

Now I will try to retell what was heard in one of the Bali surfer schools throughout the course. We took lessons for two months - from mid-July to mid-September. This is a dry season. For all the time we hit the rain only a couple of times when we went to volcanoes. The rest of the weather was perfect. Good wind, excellent waves, air temperature from 23 to 30, I keep quiet about the water: when you grew up on Baikal, even the Sea of ​​Japan in Vladik seems warm in June. In Bali, we generally lived without hot water for two months. As unnecessary). There are many spots in Bali: for any difficulty level. In each of the seasons, the advantage turns into certain spots. They all start with Kuta. Every day, t-shirts and boards of various surf schools are full-blooded around the shore, whose beginner classes take place on the foam, where we like those with sluggish long boards. In the distance, for line-ups, uncle with shot boards are waiting for their wave. It is very important to take into account the time of ebbs and flows. It is based on it the schedule of classes. Schedule changes in water levels can always be found on many sites of local surf schools.

Let's start with the equipment. If you came for the sake of testing, then, of course, you should not get wet suits for a couple of weeks skating). Even if they are so good. In schools, before each lesson you are given T-shirts and shorts.

And when classes end, you can buy comfortable shorts in any surf shop, which is countless in Bali. I did just that, but the top was a regular T-shirt. You can, of course, in a bathing suit. But for this you need a good level, so that the first wave of it does not tear you away)). I think that for a start, the main thing is that the clothes fit snugly, do not fly off, do not rub when getting wet and do not hinder your movements. To her as if not). I advise all long-haired people to learn how to weave tight braids. Any tail quickly wash away with a rubber band, no matter how tight it may be). At first it distracted me. The guys have it all the same easier. It is also worth mentioning the knee pads. The longboards for the losers are rubberized on top, this makes it easier to get up - the legs do not slip, but until your technique becomes infallible, you will erase the palm of your hand, your knees, the inner surface of the thigh (with frequent transition to a sitting position and back). Constant contact with sea water does not contribute to fast healing, because if you feel that the rubbing process is peculiar to you, ask for knee pads. Do not repeat the mistakes of others). 

Foam kings

As already mentioned, the first classes are held in the foam. But first, there is an analysis of technology, training outside the water and the modeling of waves from the sand). The wave is formed as it approaches the coast: the steeper the angle of formation of the coast, the less space for water, therefore - the faster the wave is pushed out by the ocean. At first it is gently sloping, but as it approaches the shore, its angle is becoming sharper. When the angle is maximum, and the mass of water continues to remain, the wave closes, its collapse with the formation of a huge foaming mass. It is on this foam that the development of the basic technology takes place. One of the most important rules: never try to crack up and stand on a closing wave, it often leads to injuries and broken boards. A powerful blow falls on the sprawled surfer and the board, respectively. It turns out that we have two options: 1) riding on foam, 2) riding on green waves. So beautifully called real waves. We will talk about them later, but for now let us return to the closing wave. The main thing is to understand that there are no other options for riding. Not about ... Not near ... Not for ...

Many unknowingly begin to move away from the foam further and further. Looking for something new). It ends with the fact that the wave closes on the surfer. The blow is very strong. Usually a person washes off the board and turns in the water, as in a washing machine. The farther you are from the coast and the stronger the wave, the harder it is to scoop. If the waves go one after another with a short interval, then the probability is high that by the time you exhaustedly take a breath to the surface, the next wave will cover you. What to do if you close the wave? Sit on the board with your back to it, raise the nose of the board. The blow will be on the back. Checked - tolerated. If you turned over and twisted under water, tightly clasp your head with your hands, elbows forward. Thus, to emerge in order to avoid hitting your or someone else's board in the face. Only then, looking around, pull the board over the leash (the non-tangling rope connecting the board with your non-leading leg) to yourself. Igor once caught such a wave, being not yet froze. Board broke in two. When he began to calm Igor down and blame the unexpected wave of everything, he said: “Oh well, is it impossible to close them? And after all I specifically wanted to show off ”))))). After these words, I stopped soothing) Vypendrezh slightly undermined our budget, but much less than we thought :). It is good that this is not a snowboard, which no one has already repaired, who has already broken. Everything is easier here.
