The ' Easy school' of surfing returns

My inspiration for surfing has always been to harmonise with the forces of nature, rather than to impose myself and my personality on them. It is what we call 'Pure Surfing'

. It is   also known in Hawaii as the 'make it easy' school. Pure surfing is not the aim of the mass market surf industry, which prefers at all times to make surfing difficult and to attack waves rather than flowing with them.

Pure surfing consists of removing that which is not needed in order to achieve efficiency and economy of motion, so that the experience becomes as easy as breathing.

  Nothing must come between you and the experience. This requires a fresh design philosophy, whereby art consists of perfect function.
