The sport of surfing now represents a multi-billion dollar industry, but its not just America and Australia that surfing has become popular. The UK has seen surfing popularity skyrocket this year. With places like Cornwall, Devon and Bournmouth busy even on cold days! A great time to open a surf shop I would say.
A lot of surfing establishments have now opened online shops such as Freakfish, and quite right too! there is a large market to be explored.
English weather is always a factor against getting into the sea, but with the right wetsuit you can still keep fairly warm whilst riding the waves. After seeing all the people in the sea on my last trip to Cornwall, I think I might take up the hobby myself. There is a lot of trial and error involved and I realise I'm not going to be able to just get onto a board and surf, but with help from websites like surfingtipsandtricks.co.uk I may just be able to survive!
