If you're lucky enough to live in the Bay Area, you've been lucky enough to appreciate some of the unseasonably gorgeous weather we've been having recently. Those of us inclined to brave the cold water in search of a nice ride found last weekend particularly special. The waves were decent, the sun was strong and it was a great time out surfing.
But it got my surf buddy and I talking about the camaraderie and fellowship of surfers along the coast. For the most part, surfers are pretty chill and accepting of beginners and visitors - because we've all been there. But why can't surfing be a pickup sport?
It's more fun when you're with a few buddies or betties, and as many Ocean Beach surfers can attest, it's not always safe to be out by yourself. So we figured surfing is another great sport that we can tell people about on Pickup Sports. Just like other games on the Pickup Sports app, it passes the following criteria:
1) You can partake alone (but it's more fun with at least one other person)
2) Location is very important (since good surf breaks are found in many places)
3) If you're new to the area or sport, some local input is invaluable!
Let us know what you think, and if you're out to hang ten or thrash the lip, don't go it alone!
