Bodysurfers try to describe bodysurfing to their friends as the the enjoyment of using only their body to ride a wave, often getting some strange looks!
Some bodysurfers describe it as the purest way to connect with the oceans waves, and I agree with them!

My name is Oscar Schoots, I’m a bodysurfer from Northern NSW in Aus. I’m on a backbacking trip at the moment and am spending some time in Greece, obviously not known for its surf. I’m on the northern coast of Crete in Chania (had similar conditions in Malia as well) and there has been a decent 4-5 foot hollow shore break for the last three days! Some good steep sections and tubes as well some slow burners, nothing really long as its a shore break but certainly a lot of fun, especially when there isn’t a single other body surfer and no surfboards in sight where ever I went (the Greeks and English tourists don’t seem confortable at all in the surf). I certainly wasn’t expecting any surf I didn’t think it really happened in the Mediterranean sea. I had done some research on the matter before coming (as any conscientious bodysurfer would do) and didn’t find anyone talking about any real reliable or surfable breaks, maybe a little wind swell every now and again when there is a storm, people do a fair bit of wind surfing around the islands apparently. I did have a chat with a local who hires out umbrellas and sun beds on the beach and he said it is like this quite often during summer. Anyway I obviously didnt bring my fins on the trip with me but this shorebreak was the perfect strength and speed so fins aren’t really neccessary.
Summing up I just thought you and the community might be interested and if anyone is going to Greece for a holiday tell them to pack some fins!
