surfs up!

28/10/05

finally had a go at eurfing today. booked up a lesson each so we headed down to the beach.

we were given a couple of warm up techniques and the basics in controlling the board and then it was into the water. it was low tide, so there wasnt much action as by the time you got anywhere, you were hitting the beach.

we only went in waist height and caught the waves from a standing position. we were taught how to stand and turn and then gave it a go for ourselves. we both managed to stand for about 2 seconds, but it was reallly hard due to the low tide. it was that bad, they decided to give us a free hour board hire in the afternoon on high tide.

so after lunch, we had another go and it was much better. still only managed to stand for a few seconds before falling off. gonna give it a go at byron to see if i remember the basics.

it was all out war again at dinner. after the stress of that, we went out for a few drinks around surfers, which definatley had a blackpool feel about the place
