Don't waste your time or money on this lousy 35 minute movie of a couple of girls surfing. Other than how to 'Duck Dive' with a long, or shortboard, you won't learn anything else. There are websites with free info on surfing that will teach you how to choose a board, get past the breaks, when to go for a wave, how to stand up, turn, drop, etc. Just go into search engine [...] and type in 'learn to surf'. I am very much a novice and thought this DVD was instructional...well it ain't. If you really just want to waste your hard earned moola, send your money to me instead.
