Surfing Vocabulary – Cowabunga!

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.
