Surfing is a popular coastal activity that has attracted considerable attention in the recreation, pop culture and academic literature in recent decades. While surf literature and research into the history and sociology of surfing continues to build, there remains a gap in inquiry about how young people learn to surf. This narrative inquiry study presents a set of short stories about how young people learn and become enskiled in surf places. The study is based upon a small selection of participants who surf, or surfed, with family members while learning to surf in South East Victoria, Australia.
