Is it safe to surf alone?
In Beginner - Asked by Mary
This depends on many things, such as your swimming ability, the surf conditions, and the amount of daylight. Surfers are generally aware of their surroundings and anybody who may need help in their general vicinity. This is good because it could save your life. That said, it is a good idea to always go surfing with a partner. Besides the obvious benefit of having someone who is always looking for you to resurface after a wave, it is infinitely more fun to surf with people you know. There is a lot of downtime as you wait for waves to come through, so you will probably have more fun chatting with a mate in the water rather than sitting in silence.
