So You Want to Know a Bit About Surf Life?
Surf Life has the objective of being the global hub for surfing. Allowing users to buy, sell and also swap any of their new or old surf gear. In addition we have a wide range of surf forums.
It all started in the summer of 2016, while the founder Charlie was studying mathematics in his penultimate year at university. Originally there was no drive behind the name, it was originally born from a love of surfing and the motivation to want to start a small business also. Since then we have come a long way, pivoting ideas at various instances. Consequently, finding our niche as a modern global surf hub. With this idea in mind, we have created a platform that allows users to buy, sell and also swap any of their surf gear. Finally, our other main feature is our Surf Forums, these allow our surf community to come together to ask and answer any surf related questions they have. So as soon as a user signs up/logs in they have unlimited access to help or ask for help about any topics they want.
In the summer of 2017, we will also be arriving on the shores of Cornwall at Boardmasters. We’re hoping to talk about what we do and furthermore listen to every great idea our fans bring forward. We will also be bringing our great merch, and super team! We have some great ideas that we think will revolutionise the way surfer interact out of the water, and hence can’t wait to talk through them with everyone.

Heres a taste of a few of our surf blogs
Firstly hello and welcome to the first ever SurfLife blog! I’m glad you made it here.Today I wanted to write about the biggest ‘tip’, or lesson I’ve learnt whilst surfing. So here I go…
Months on end my surfing ability had barely been improving, I could catch a wave easily, get up eventually and hopefully go along the wave before it crashes down on me. Now this doesn’t seem that bad for someone who had only just started standing, but after a while, the novelty does wear off. Now in comes the steep learning curve… Read More
The Changing Face of Skateboarding Culture.
Growing up in the mid noughties in South East England, there were few things that ever surprised me.

However, one of the few curiosities that arose from the streets was the diversity in urban… Read More

Very important to know the rules of surfing, to avoid pissing people off, and be respected yourself. These aren’t all the ‘rules’, but the ones I think are most important. So in no particular order… Read More
