Hemos mantenido el surf. Algunas personas también lo llaman "Hacer tabla" y luego está la modalidad de "hacer windsurfing".

navegar


Explanation:
It depends whether you mean in the sea with a surfboard, in which case Pilar's first answer is correct. If on the other hand you're talking about surfing the Internet, then the verb in Spanish is navegar por Internet.
Good luck,
Sarah.
