Is it ever too late to start surfing? No. Can you learn to surf in you 60s? Sure. Because you only discover the true meaning of life when you catch your first wave and ride it to the beach.

Age is a state of mind. By now, you have probably heard that we reach our peak physical functioning and ability in our 20s and early 30s. No drama.

Technically, there is no reason why a 80-year-old man/woman can’t paddle for a wave, catch it, and pop up easily. Nowadays, it is not uncommon to spot lifelong surfers in crowded lineups.
