Can you surf in Seattle?

No, the waves aren't big enough in Puget sound, and the water is freezing, but I suppose you could try. I doubt it would work though. In Lake Washington and Lake Union and Portage bay the waves aren't big enogh to keep up a surfboard. Once again in Puget Sound the water is freezing, so I suggest a wet suit.

Why do some surfboards have more than 1 fin located on the underside of the board?


Fins control the surfboard, its depth helps it hold in turns, a longer fin base will give you more speed, and a longer rake angle gives tighter turns, additional fins increase these attributes, tight turns especially require fins that are positioned close to the outer edges of the surfboard as a good portion of the bottom will be out of the water, that is why most single fin boards are for cruising or medium wave riding.

Would you be better off using a short board or a long board surfing a reef break in the Cook Islands?

My mate was recently there said it was great. I recommend you take a shortboard and a Gun. Most of the reefs here are very shallow, making them heavy, bring a few spare leggies.

Which is more dangerous skateboarding or surfing?

I am a intermediate surfer and i surf with a longboard. Skateboarding is more dangerous because if u fall on the ground u get wounds. If u wipeout in surfing, its more safer if u hit the water... If u surf, find a beach that has a sandy bottom and ask any lifeguards if they are any sharks. It is more unlikely to be attacked by a shark... I think skateboarding is more dangerous... cuz moving on the skateboard is harder and boring and riding on a surfboard more easy and more fun.... Rate on this answer!!

What is the most expensive surfboard ever sold?

Answerlatest FHM had a random fact saying that the most exspoensive surfboard is the '11ft Buzzy trent' model surfboard sold for 35,000.

-^that is incorrect actually. The most expensive surfboard is more like $100,000. There were 10 of them created by Marc Newson. They were nickel plated, however they were functional. He created them with the help of Dick Brewer, who's boards have fetched prices as high as in the $50K range.
