How I grew Up Surfing Uncrowded Waves at Home

By Published On: August 3, 2022

In the golden days of endless summers, where flip-flops were my footwear and the surfboard was a cherished companion, Skhirat Beach was not just a beach—it was the heart of my childhood. The sunsets painted the sky with hues of orange and pink, the sand beneath my feet told tales of countless adventures, and the waves, oh, they were more than mere water—they were my friends, my teachers, and the rhythm to which I danced.

Growing up on the sandy shores of Skhirat wasn’t just a blessing; it was the very fabric of my existence. The surfboard was my magic carpet, and each wipeout was a lesson in resilience. Those early days were filled with laughter, the joy that only the ocean, in all its vastness and mystery, can bring.

Skhirat Beach: Where the Story Began

Skhirat Beach wasn’t just a spot on the map; it was the stage where my surfing story unfolded. I still remember standing on the sandy shore for the first time, feeling the salty breeze tugging at my hair, and the anticipation before paddling out into the unknown. Skhirat wasn’t just a place; it was home—a sandy playground where I took my first wobbly steps into the world.

We used to spend our summers in our beach house, and that’s where I have my warmest childhood memories. Building sand castles, chasing crabs, learning to fish with my dad, and later surfing and making bonfires. I got hooked on surfing a little later, and everything evolved around that new passion. The lifestyle, the looks, everything! Back then, I had no idea how much surfing would influence my life.

Those were some fantastic years. What I did and what I learned shaped most of my core values and beliefs, where the waves were not just water but old friends welcoming me into their embrace. My passion for surfing grew tremendously, and I spent all my 20s exploring and improving my surfing skills. With a small group of friends, we used to surf early mornings before heading to the office. You would find us in the parking lots, wetsuits on, warming up, and waiting for the first light to jump in the water and squeeze in an early surf session. The surf exploration days then started.
