Tip: check the wave conditions
Are there any waves today? That is the first question every surfer asks him- or her self in the morning. Back in the day you had to drive your car to different beaches to check the weather conditions with your own eyes. It had his charm but nowadays luckily there are useful websites and apps that can give you the information directly on your smartphone. For example, Surf Escape, Surfline and Magic Seaweed.
