The Early Days of Surfing – Santa Teresa & Santo Domingo

The history of surfing is an interesting one, full of interesting turning points and zones like in each country, the success attained through its implementation depends on its local characteristics. Its popularity is perversely proportional to the indigenous groups that fought for its acquisition. Yes, surfing is a modern sport, only evolving from its ancient roots. The differences between the components of the sport can give rise to its success and influence worldwide, thus certain developing characteristics of each country make unique styles of surfing.

Lots of people do not know that there is a “start” and a “finale” to surfing. The start could be considered beginning. The sport involves two main groups: the riders and the wave. Both groups have their own characteristics and represent the dichotomy of the sport. With the riders, it represents freedom, high cardiovascular activity, speed and power, high strength, there is a certain anaerobic and aerobic component in it, that comprises of rhythm, flexibility and unimaginable power surfing.

Meanwhile, the wave is the source of power. The power of the waves, the direction and size they move are dependent on the wind. The size of the wave is governed by the wind speed and direction, its special characteristics are reflected by the power, speed and shape of the wave.

Riders experience freedom and are engaged in a rhythmical activity. But the power in the waves is unpredictable. This activity is constantly evolving, and it becomes harder and harder to ride the waves, as the size of the waves increases, the speed and compression are greater and greater.

The evolution of surfing was a natural one. Over the years it has succeeded in breaking its link with the dropping of waves in coastal regions (the so called ” empty” waters). Thanks to changes in the dynamics of the wave and with the help of the proper technologies, surfing techniques are now not only applicable worldwide, they have become very profitable as well.

How did surfing develop in such a short period of time? When did it originate? Where did it originate? The history of surfing is easily Identification as the “osu” or the God’s gift to mankind. It reaches from the oceans to the skies. It reaches east and west, North and South. Surfing is an activity that makes surfers leave their national boundaries and travel long distances to the seashores. With the new technologies, like the build-up of the anti- cable kind of bridges, surfing has become a very lucrative business. By the development of inexpensive mobile networks, surf spots have become vastly more accessible. People without surf boats had been wishing to surf all the life at sea. In the last few years I made a decision that I would no longer leave my country only for money. Life in Spain has always been more interesting than Madrid; my family was born and grew up in an Ibiza resort, my childhood was spent on the Spanish island of Ibiza, I’m steeped in Spanish culture and the language, but Ibiza represents my love of paranism and profound foreign language. I’ve been in Spain since 1993, even today I rarely speak the spoken language of my country, I feel somewhere in between the lack of communication and the lack of understanding. The lack of communication is multidial: because you can’t understand each other it comes with a lack of understanding.
