|Virginia Beach Surfing|
Quite honestly, what would the city of Virginia Beach be without the favorite pasttime of surfing? It has truly defined this area in so many ways. From it's earliest beginnings back in the 50s and 60s, surfing introduced the Virginia Beach community to a way of life... "a laid back, go with the flow, no worries, live in the moment" philosophy. And it's this easy going lifestyle that folks love about Virginia Beach. Surfing is enjoyed by the young and old alike (you hear that baby boomers), and the best thing about surfing is it's FREE. So in appreciation, we want to thank all the surfers of the past, present, and future for reminding us daily that we are here to have fun. Remember... "Life is not a dress rehearsal", so live well. :)
Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP)
The fast-growing water sport at the beach is Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP). This fun activity has really become popular in the past decade. Originating in the islands of Polynesia, it was picked up by surfers in Hawaii as a way of keeping fit while training for competitions. Paddleboarding combines surfing and kayaking, but is better than both as you can stand up on a board and use a paddle to propel yourself forward. It’s a fun, easy way to play on the water! With a minimum of equipment, you can paddle anything from ocean surf to the lakes and rivers—and best of all, no waves are required. And since you're standing at your full height, you'll enjoy excellent views of everything from sea creatures to what's on the horizon. It's almost like walking on water!

A true artist in every sense of the word. So it goes without saying, if you don't have a Frierson board in your collection, you're not a local.
