TL;DR: I went to the CityWave with some of my buddies from my snowboarding club Union 4 Elements and it was fun!
What to do when you’re a landlocked surfer? Especially during times where travelling is difficult?
A non-surfer might not understand the feeling of missing the water. It may seem like a pure first-world issue, but to me, spending time in the water is healing. I am aware that this sounds kinda esoteric and if you know me at all, you know that I am not a spiritual person. Still, I can’t find other words to describe this sensation, this heart-felt feeling that usually also stays with me for weeks after a surfing trip. It’s strong.
Visiting a stationary wave is a chance to get back into surfing, be in the water, spend time with friends and work on your surfing skills. It’s not the same as surfing in the ocean, but it’s a start. A small glimpse of the feeling that surfing in the ocean gives me.
