I am always talking about how Surfing is my favourite sport. I love it because it means you can go to the beach and get in the ocean and enjoy the sun! The world of surfing has a language all of its own, and I’m going to share it with you, with examples of how to use it in English conversation.
1. To Catch a Wave – Coger Una Ola
I’m going to the beach with my surfboard – I hope I can catch some waves today!
2. Wetsuit – El Traje de Surf
I’m going surfing today but the water is cold so I need to wear a wetsuit.
3. Wave – La Ola
Let’s go surfing today, the waves are huge today!
4. To Wipe Out – Caerse
I had a really bad wipe out and I thought I was going to die!
5. Tube – El Tubo
Wow, I got some really great tubes today! I’m so stoked!
6. Stoked – (No se)
I’m so stoked, the waves are amazing, I’m really happy!
7. To Paddle – Remar
I am going to paddle through the waves. It’s hard to paddle, because the waves are HUGE.
8. To Stand Up – Ponerse de Pie, Levantarse
I’m not very good at surfing. I still can’t stand up on the surfboard.
