Grey Havens Surfing School
What's the difference between Grey Havens Surf School and all the other
Elven surf schools out there?
We pride ourselves in teaching the full surfing experience: when
you learn with us, not only do you learn how to stand up and ride
waves, you learn ancient Elven songs about the sea, surfing etiquette
for Valinor-bound travellers and some of that Sundering Sea knowledge
that is such a critical aspect of surfing.
Advanced classes on transforming into
a seabird are available on an as-needed basis.
Surfing, for most surfers, is a complete lifestyle, not just a sport
that we do once-in-a-while. It's a tradition thousands of years
old, passed down through the Ages by the Original Surfers of the West
who knew how to surf their way there and back again. Welcome to the Sport of the Valar!
There are quite a number of Elven patrons who either by choice or by
circumstance do not choose to fish from a boat. Come join us while you
wait for that next vessel to sail! Surf fishing anglers come in
all varieties, Greenwood, Dark, High - no matter what your origin, you
can be just as fanatical as any other angler. What some of our members
lack in the way of a boat they more than make up for in their homemade
fishing equipment. Our experienced surf anglers cruise the beaches and
piers communing with the seabirds to find their schools of baitfish.
They will follow a moving school of bait fish around and around the
Bay, dancing, singing, just waiting for that school of fish to begin
feeding through them.
Because our surf fishing is a very specialized type it requires some
very specialized tackle. Surf rods of thin Mallorn branches 12 feet
long, capable of slinging a half-pound weight plus bait up to 150 yards
beyond the breaking surf are seen up and down the beach, whipping
expertly over the heads of our boat-builders. The weights used
when bottom fishing in the surf vary little, and are usually a leftover
piece of old Dwarven weaponry clipped on a drop rig with the
bait. Every Elf agrees that Dwarven metal digs into bottoms
best. Surf anglers may be seen arguing regularly as to whether
the length of the rod, the type of bait, the depth of the communal
relationship with the seabirds or their ancient fish-charming music
plays the biggest part, but it is all in good fun. If a
boat-builder snaps your rod, never fear, there are plenty more where
those came from.

from a satisfied customer:
Thanks for a fantastic month in the Gulf. We all had a great time and
our thoroughly enjoyed it despite the those of us who used that big
boom being pretty sore and stiff when it was time to set sail!!! I'll
never forget the look on your face when those surf-fishers all shot
into the waves at once, who would've guessed that boom could swing so
wide? A great time had by all. Thanks! - Galdor

Screamer bungee - jump off of the cliffs over the boats-
