Have you been on the surfing board before? Are you afraid of surfing because of the powerful wave that moves to and fro?
Don't doubt, you can learn how to surf on the water within 2 hours. My brother at the college has always been afraid of riding on a boat and at the beach; he stays far away from the water. Guess what? He now uses a surfing board perfectly.
He learned how to surf on the water in less than 3 hours. Another training is going to be taking place but I'm not ready. You don't have to worry too much because you will learn the theory first, whereby you will be exposed to the in and out of surfing, the safety measures, skills, and techniques.
You will be on the water with the instructor and after you have mastered the simple techniques, you can now practice later whenever you want.
Don't be afraid of the waves and the noise, the safest part of the water will be used, and gradually you will improve. I'm not sure I will learn this surfing thing but if my brother chooses to teach me then I'm good.
Watch out for great knowledgeable instructors. They will make your day.
