    I’ve never watched an official surf contest, but I have watched surfers do their thing & it is amazing! I’d just be too afraid of sharks to even get out there!

      It’s pretty fun to watch, right? I think that once you’re out there, you don’t even think about things like sharks :-)

    I seriously never knew about all of this. Very interesting.

      I know, right? It’s pretty fascinating especially how much strategy goes into each heat. My husband thinks I’m crazy when I start yelling at the computer screen. hee hee.

    My hubby would love to watch one I’m sure. I think it’d be cool to see one live. That would, of course, mean I’d be on the beach ;-)

      You should! The Rip Curl Pro contest at Bells Beach in Australia should be running later this week and you can watch it online. Even worth is just to check out a few heats. You don’t have to watch it live as they have heats-on-demand, basically replays of everything that happened and you can fast forward to see the high scoring waves.

    How interesting! I suddenly feel the urge to go to the beach. Sigh. ;-)

    No, and maybe. Thanks for explaining it so well! It’s still as complicated as I thought – and I guess my fear would be that as a spectator I wouldn’t see much. Is watching it on TV/online better? I do love surf movies!

      You can definitely see better when watching online plus you get the commentators remarks on what’s going on, replays, etc. You don’t get to hear that when you’re actually spectating on the beach. But being on the beach itself for a big contest is pretty incredible and fun. So much energy and a fun day to spend the day.

    I’ve never watched one – but I love to watch surfers in the water. Last time we were in CA we went to the Huntington Beach pier and just stared out into the surf for hours. They look so free and fearless – right?

      It’s freaking incredible. Free and fearless – yes! I could just sit and watch for hours too.

      They held a contest just outside NYC in 2011 (where a few of the pictures in the post were taken) – the first pro contest to be held in New York and maybe the East Coast and it was so much fun being out there to watch. We took the boys but they were much more interested in digging in the sand than watching the surfing. haha. At least they were occupied so that Ed and I could watch the competition!

    I LOVE watching surf contests! It’s been quite a while for me though. My dad was a surfer and taught me how when I was young. I hope to make it to one in the near future!

      That’s awesome! I wish that I had learned when I was younger and I hope to get my kids on boards soon!

    Cool! Pinned this, Christine! I only got into watching hockey once I had a good understanding of how it works and what was going on, so this is a great guide to introduce new people to the sport. :)

      Thanks Carly! Understanding what’s going on makes it soooo much more enjoyable. And I have no idea what’s going on in hockey which explains why i never watch!
