Start Here

If this is your first time here, thanks for checking out the site! Here’s how it all works…

Over The Dune has two main parts:

Surf Stories

Surf Stories

The main blog. Documenting my journey, what I’ve done and who I’ve met (including loads of photos I’ve taken on the way).

Read my surf stories

Surf Lessons Learned

Surf Lessons Learned

The tip list. Explaining the lessons I’ve learned. Wave science, surf technique,  culture and everything in between. (Look out for Stick Man)

Read the surf lessons I’ve learned

Like anyone who goes down the long trail of learning to surf, I’m picking up tips everywhere I go. From my own sessions, other learners, strangers, locals, friends, pros, coaches, shapers, shop owners, photographers, you name it.

The difference is that I’m going to try and keep an account of all the tips I learn, as I learn them. The world of surfing is a beautiful thing and I want to encourage everyone to try it out. No nonsense, no confusing terminology (but I am building up a surf slang page as I go, check it out if anything doesn’t make sense).

If you want to know more about why I started the site, head to the about page. Otherwise what are you waiting for? Check out stories or lessons learned above.

See you in the water!
