2 great sports combined into one fun game! If surfing is fun, and water polo is fun, why don't we just moosh them together? Its like PB & J right?
A couple of weeks ago we were able to play in the Surf Polo tournament that was held at Waimea Bay. Since the north shore is flat during the summer the bay is nice and calm and perfect for such occasions.
So surf polo.... how does that work you might be asking, it is quite different from regular water polo thats for sure. Usually, you would put ball under your chin and paddle, instead of swimming with it (as shown here by Stuart):
Shooting is a whole other game, you can sit or stand but you have to be on your board. Both present its challenges though. Have you tried to throw something while sitting down, its a lot harder and you can't get as much power behind it... standing on the other hand you can get a lot of power behind your shot however, your on an unstable board so its pretty easy to fall.
Anyways... surf polo is tons of fun and we had a great time playing, and look forward to another Surf Polo tournament next year!
