      James McCormack…if u can skate n snow then this should give u an advantage in the water,but believe me,surfing aint no walk in the park…you gotta be fit,be able to swim,know the rules of surfing what to do & what NOT to do and so much more….do a little research n go to sum uncrowded beach b4 you try it with the big boys or it will bite you on tbe ass…goodluck…RESPECT IN THE WATER !

      • Adam Kohl

        Wave knowledge is key. Learn how waves move and the basics of how your board and fins take advantage of that. I’d say that’s the main learning curve switching from land to water

    Is there a formula for how the seeding works through round 3? It get’s really simple at round 4.

    • BJT

      top seed vs bottom seed.
