The Mermaid’s Mirror: Surfing Primer

Lena, Kai, Pem and Annie all share a passion for surfing. Sunshine, beach, water, waves – the perfect combination for some surfing fun. So, what’s all the excitement about? What’s it take to “hang ten?”

Annie started Lena off with some great terms and tips. We learned the basics right along with Lena: watching the shore break,  paddling, turning turtle, grabbing the rails and popping up. Great! But what else is there to know about surfing?

The answer is: a lot! The waves, the gear, the language and the culture. We found tons of great information on surfing terms and lexicon. There’s way too much to list it all here, but here are a few links to get you started:

Wave Terminology

Surf Terms

RIPTIONARY: Surf Lingo Lexicon

Check them out and before you know it, you’ll be a surf pro just like Lena.
