How do I survive a wipeout?
Inevitably in surfing, you’re going to wipe out on more than a couple of occasions. This prospect can be intimidating initially, but the best piece of advice I can give you is not to panic. When a wave is throwing you around, it’s easy to start desperately trying to swim to the surface while you’re still in the grasps of the wave. All this will achieve, however, is to waste energy and rob you of important breath. Simply let the wave have its way with you – eventually, you might even come to enjoy this aspect of surfing – and once it’s finished you’ll naturally begin to float to the surface. When you know for sure which way is up, you can hasten the process by swimming to the surface yourself, but don’t bother trying to fight against the force of the wave before it’s passed you.
