Surf Camp, Day One

Waves were between 2-4 feet. Spent quite a bit of time on the Indo Boards,

BUT...

I did get up on the board and even rode a few in. Sport caught the hang of it quicker (heck, she grew up in the surf), but I managed to find my footing. Tomorrow, paddling. I'm hoping that I can start on turning before the week is over.

FYI, the new Banana Boat spray and O'Neill rashie works well to keep away the burn. Thanks for the advice, LKQ!

These foam boards are ruining me for real (fiberglass) boards. Doc actually had a few good rides.

doc thinks that all rides are "good" rides. Fortunately, you set the bar a bit higher, sport.

I caught a couple of rides on my sponge. Total. And not both on the same day. And that doesn't even involve standing up. You guys are both very cool. Uh...'dude.'

B inherited a tiny little short board to learn on this summer. It is barely as tall as he is and weighs about two pounds. His surfing mentor seems to have thought he was making learning look too easy on the bigger board...

I have no doubt that B will be up and surfing in two hours. Our foam boards are pretty similar to sponges, I imagine. I just love the 'woosh' when you realize that you are now part of the wave. I almost forget I have to stand up.
