NO ITS TOTALLY DIFFERENT THAN SNOWBOARDING. IF YOU FALL IN SNOWBOARDING YOU JUST GET UP AND GO. SURFING YOU HAVE TO PADDLE BACK OUT AND TRY TO CATCH ANOTHER WAVE. SO IT TAKES ALOT MORE TIME TO LEARN HOW TO SURF.

You're not comparing the same thing.

1) Not all snowboarders ride "trails" .... this is a new invention.... I used to ride only man-made ski resort trails but most higher leveled snowboarders or people looking for that "thrill" are riding backcountry, off-piste, glades, etc which are hella hard

If you wanan compare riding a "big wave" ... try 60ft cliff drops into a chute ....

If you say snowboarding you can just get up and go ... well you can do that too in surfing - sure you won't catch a huge wave

Basically you're not comparing the two fairly ... I think snowboarding and surfing are about equal in how hard they are - they're BOTH hard ... i've snowbaorded and skiied for about 15 years now since i was little and I surfed for 3 ... so yeah - get your shit straight homies

Easily Camden Snowbowl's parking lot is across Rte. A1 to Rockport ledge- a rare left granite nut-cruncher that grinds on rare winter se swells; none more accomodating than running to lodge, grab a jigger of brandy and carve the last spray of powder thru the balsam firs and see golden sunset reflecting on barrels in the channel!

Well, I have been snowboarding for at least 12 years (I honestly don't remember when I started) and am obviously very very comfortable going down just about any trail down any mountain. This winter, I am going to Hawaii with my family and I definitely want to try surfing. Am I in big trouble or should I be ok after a few days? I am also very comfortable in water as I have been swimming for over 20 years and am even Scuba certified. Would any specific exercises be helpful?

if the waves are good and you've got the right board i think you'll probably be able to stand up on your first day. just run a search on you tube for " learning to surf" its about as hard as snowboarding but in snowboarding you can spend way more time actually trying to ride the board. in surfing you've got a whole other world of variables to deal with like for instance, catching the wave. until you can pull that off your not going to be surfing and its a little tougher than learning to ride a ski lift! ahh... those were the days. If your coming to hawaii and want to learn to surf please be careful and please be respectful of the people around you. have fun be safe!
