This must be declared a sport. I go crazy when these big waves come on shore. It's so funny to see all the people in the beach playing like children with the waves, including men and women in their late 50's. The aim is to let the wave take you away while fighting to hold your head above the water. And sometimes it may be dangerous, so hold tight your bath costume.
Surfists will laugh at this of course.
There is not any big thing to catch, just small fishies, but one can have fun anyway and, who knows, you may be much more lucky than the others before you.
Equipment: Most basic equipment is fine. Choose a rock and try your fate.
