When you go on a beach vacation, you will probably see some people surfing. Maybe they’re pros, or you might even see groups of beginners go out and take lessons. Either way, surfing can seem like a really daunting activity that is only meant for people who are super athletic or have a deep love for the ocean. While this is a great sport for people who fit this description, it can also be a really great activity for those just looking for some fun on a beach vacation!

There are so many reasons to sign up for surfing lessons, but one of the greatest ones is to simply challenge yourself. When was the last time you tried something new that you knew you would be bad at in the beginning? If you’re like the rest of the world, it has probably been a while. Surfing is a great way to let yourself fail and get back up. You will build resilience, and when you finally stand up on that board, you will feel so much better because you truly worked hard to get there.

There’s also a calming aspect to sitting on a board waiting for the perfect wave. Even if you spend the whole lesson without success in standing up, you’ll walk away feeling proud of yourself for trying and rejuvenated from being in flow with the water.
