Hey! My name’s Sam. I’m learning to surf.

Over The Dune Surf Progress Biarritz 2014 Tanah Lott 2016

The journey so far

I’m writing, doodling and taking photos of my surfing experiences; from surf lessons in Newquay to adventures around the world and all the random tips I’ve picked up on the way.

The aim at Over The Dune is to get surfing. Everything from the science and technique of surfing to culture, anxieties, physical struggles and anything else a surfer comes up against.

When I was a kid I dreamt of being a surfer, but never thought it was possible. It took me far too long to get started, but somehow, 15 years later I found myself sitting across a board in the frigid Atlantic, smiling at the thought. What had I been worried about? How did that scared kid end up finding his way into the line-up?

That night I began a surfing blog. Over The Dune. Not just for the sake of sharing my stories, but to prove just how accessible surfing can be, away from the glossy media and shark infested surf forums.

In a world that can often seem daunting and out-of-reach, my aim is to cut through the noise, to bring fresh, honest, straight-forward information about surfing as I learn first hand, making sure to explain any terminology as I pick it up (on the surf slang page).

I am a writer, creative and keen photographer fanatical about surfing.

I still don’t consider myself good enough to be “a surfer”, but you don’t have to be either.

Just grab a board and get Over The Dune!

No matter where you join me on my journey, you can always go back and start from the beginning.

See you over there!

Oh, and by the way… Everything at Over The Dune is a learning experience, so I welcome your opinions, additions and corrections as we learn together. Feel free to get in touch and I’ll get back to you.
