Surfing is a water sport in which a person rides a surfboard on the surface of breaking waves, usually in the ocean. The surfer paddles out to the lineup where the waves are breaking, and then waits for a suitable wave to catch. Once the surfer catches the wave, they stand up on the board and ride it towards the shore. Surfing can be a thrilling and challenging sport that requires a combination of balance, coordination, strength, and endurance. It can be enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels, and can provide a great workout for both the body and mind. In addition to being a sport, surfing is also a way of life and a culture that is deeply rooted in the ocean and coastal communities around the world.
The Atlantic Ocean coastline has something to offer surfers of all levels. This is common knowledge to all keen surfers. Depending on the ‘swell’, the tide and the wind, beginners and experienced surfers will come into their own here. A surfing holiday to France, Portugal or Morocco is a sports holiday that’s perfect for combining with a wellness holiday. And some health resorts offer both surfing and an array of spa facilities. Many French wellness resorts also offer thalasso programmes, making optimal use of everything the sea has to offer. In Portugal, you can follow a detox and surf the waves.
