This fifteen minutes of reading will tell you everything that I wish I knew before I started surfing and lays out the lessons I learned the hard way. Over the past few years I've surfed around the world and have gone to surf schools in five different countries. I'm not writing this as an expert surfer, but rather as a student who has had the benefit of surfing lessons from countless instructors with varied styles and numerous techniques. My biggest take away from all this instructional experience is that 90% of these instructors are terrible at teaching beginners Language barriers aside, they are often too far removed from what it is like to be a beginner or don't have the ability to effectively communicate what has become second nature to them. The lack of good instruction turns people away from surfing and even worse, has caused terrible accidents due to poor safety practices. I myself have a permanent 6 inch scar across my chest from my second time surfing I decided to write this beginners guide as a collection of the best tips and lessons that I've received over the years. This guide is meant to be a short and easy read for beginner surfers and will dramatically increase the fun factor, help you actually get up on the board, and decrease your chances of getting hurt.

The Florida Reef is known for its brilliant corals as much as it is for sunken pirate treasure. From Carysfort Reef to Indian Key to Dry Tortugas National Park, the Florida Keys provide many excellent and diverse snorkelling opportunities. Snorkeling the Florida Keys dives into more than forty sites, including reefs, wrecks, and beaches. The third largest barrier reef system in the world runs along the east side of the Florida Keys and is fed by the nutrient-rich waters of the Gulf Stream, which support the abundant growth of bright-hued corals. These warm waters are also home to spectacular animal life. From seahorses to manatees, nature's most intriguing wonders can be found right around an outcropping of coral or grazing in algae. While today these reefs are a playground for snorkelers, fishermen, and divers, these waters were once feared by sailors. The corals lurking just beneath the surface were ship killers, stony daggers capable of carving up a wooden hull. Today those sunken ships provide stunning backdrops for snorkelling exploits. Brad Bertelli takes the guesswork out of navigating and exploring the Florida Reef. He provides practical travel advice and GPS coordinates to easily access each site, as well as useful information such as water depth, key features, notable shipwrecks, and other engrossing historical facts. Snorkeling the Florida Keys is a great read and a useful guide for divers seeking adventure. It is also suited for armchair travellers, who, without setting a fin in the water, can enjoy the conquests and mishaps of the larger-than-life historical figures who sailed the great Florida Reef.
