Diving and Snorkeling
Snorkeling is probably the number one alternative to surfing when the waves goes flat. It’s simple, doesn’t require much gear, and you’re immersing yourself in ocean life.
Dive the reef you surf to see how it makes the wave break. Explore a local shipwreck or just marvel at the sea life.
SCUBA is a bit more complicated (you have to be PADI certified), but it’s also available at most island surf destinations. Freediving is a little more involved than just snorkeling, when you start working on your breath-hold time. This should never be done solo.
We’d always recommend packing a mask, snorkel and fins for your trip. (Bonus: Fins can also be used for bodysurfing or teaching someone how to surf.)
