Whether you’re working the waves, whispering among friends or watching the sunset – surfing is so much more than a sport. It transcends the physical act of getting up on your board and instead transports you to whole new lifestyle. Surfing is not just something we do, but rather something that makes us who we are: a culture, language, and style all our own.
Here are just a few of the many reasons why life is always better when we surf…
- The Surf Culture: The surfing lifestyle brings out a surfer culture and a sense of community. Everyone is always chill, friendly, and willing to share expertise and advice with fellow surfers. At Breakwater Surf Co., we love our communities in both Newport and Rockaway, and they only continue to grow.
- Surf Stories: Surfers are always looking for new swells to chase. We will always be meeting someone new with a different story about a different wave they’ve carved. Surfers can always be inspired and often travel to new places to discover great spots and share their new findings with fellow surfers.
- Ocean Connection: Surfing puts us into the present moment. It’s a lifestyle that helps us build a stronger relationship with ourselves and with the ocean. We get to understand how the water behaves and how it works with the winds and the currents.
- Health: Who needs the gym when you have the ocean? It takes a lot of muscle and endurance to face the waves. There is no doubt that you will always get a wicked workout on the water.
- Life Lessons: The surfing lifestyle takes a lot of patience, determination, and confidence. It also takes practice and dedication. Surfing teaches us how to be modest, because with every wave, big and small, we know that it is worth it in the end.
- Taking on the Challenge & Overcoming Fears: The Ocean can be very unpredictable and we never know what direction it could throw us in next. It does, however, teach us to take every wave with an open mind and to be persistent, no matter how many times we wipe out.
- Happiness: I’d say we’re pretty happy people here at Breakwater Surf. Co. The surfing lifestyle is full of passion and every wave makes us feel alive. Starting and ending your day on a wave brings us great joy and a healthy well-being.
- The Sunsets: A sunset a day keeps the doctor away, and we’d be lying if we said we haven’t seen some of the best. Chilling on your board after a long day and watching the sunset is one of the most peaceful moments in life.
It’s all part of the lifestyle.
