Surely the likes of Lewis Hamilton at Kelly’s pool have throughly torpedoed the myth of surfing being difficult to learn?

Surfing in a wave pool is surfing?

Taking the ocean out of the equation shows it's relatively simple to teach someone to cut across a wave.

Everyone who can ride a bike can surf. 10ft mal, 1' of foamy wave, riding prone... you're surfing.

But really there's a range of skills for both and I think the difficulty for surfing and bike riding at the professional level is pretty similar.

Here's an example:

If you don't think that is as skillfull as anything in surfing then you must have had a lobotomy

So you're going to arbitrarily define a certain skill level before you acknowledge that someone is actually "surfing".

I think that is an appropriate position to take on a surfing forum, no?

Jesus fccck, trying to compare riding a bike to someone learning to paddle out in average conditions, paddle onto a wave and trim across open face face. Fccck, there is no comparison. Wtf are you cnuts harping on about.
