If you’ve ever travelled away from our shores and got talking surf then it’s inevitable you’ll have faced a variant of this question, often delivered with utter disbelief:

‘Are there waves in the UK?’
‘You get surf there?’
‘You’re a “British” surfer?!’

This question is often delivered with a snort of derision. Implying that you really don’t know what you’re on about because you don’t come from a ‘surfing’ country like the USA, Australia or South Africa. Well. We do. So ner. If you need proof just point them to this handy video or the photos below to visually aid your response.
