Surfing is a surface water sport in which a person (the surfer) moves along the face of a breaking ocean wave (the surf). Surfing also takes place on rivers, riding a standing wave.
2 majorsubdivisions within stand-up surfing are long boarding and short boarding, reflecting differences in surfboard design -- particularly including surfboard length, and riding style.
In tow-insurfing (most often, but not exclusively, associated with big wave surfing), a motorized water vehicle, such as a personal watercraft tows the surfer into the wave front, helping the surfer match a largewave's higher speed, a speed that is generally, but not exclusively a speed that a self-propelled surfer can not match.
Surfing-related sports such as paddle boarding and sea kayaking do notrequire waves, and other derivative sports such as kite surfing and windsurfing rely primarily on wind for power, yet all of these platforms may also be used to ride waves.
Recently with the use ofV-drive boats, wake surfing, riding the boat wake has emerged.
