Ask any pro surfer how much time they have spent in the water. The hours,days weeks and years of solid commitment.... it's a lot..
Now transfer that time and dedication into a sport like snooker, add a bit of natural ability and you will have a world champion. Not with surfing.
Appreciate the fact surfing is different in so many ways. Appreciate the fact you are in the water, harmonizing with the ocean. That's the key to getting better....
The happy surfer is the best surfer.
