Campbell, Calif. — Hi. I'm going to tell you how I learned how to surfboard. The first thing you need is a surfboard. Then you need the ocean. Next, go in the water and start paddling out until you see a big wave. When the wave starts to come in, turn your surfboard around so your surfboard should be heading for the shore. Then stand up. When the wave comes in, you can safely ride your surfboard. Then you can ride the waves nice and smooth all day.
