    I Made My Own Surf Board 2 Months Ago

    I took it down to the beach on a windy day and the surf was up. I hopped on it, padded out, tried to catch my breath while I waited for the seventh and barely had the strength to catch it. By the time rode it in I was completely exhausted. I had no idea I was so out of shape...

    Bliss

    I love surfing and would go every day if I lived nearer the sea. I go whenever possible in the summer but find it too cold in the winter. Tried buying a thicker wet suit recently but it was so stiff I could barely walk in it. Good reason to move from England to Hawaii!

    The Natural Rush

    I see the swollen beauty, I turn around and tread hard. I hear the sound of bubbling thunder and feel the thrust forward. Water licks my face and the wind whips my hair as I gain speed. I stand up and feel the board pulsate beneath my feet like entwined lovers in the throes of...

    I live 10 minutes away from the coast

    and visit the ocean almost every day. I have the utmost respect for the ocean and what it can do. I surf all year long through extremely cold winters with icicles hanging from my eyebrows in 40 degree waters, or in peak summer 61 degree waters in board shorts. The massive waves...

    I haven't surfed in a couple of years now, but there is no better feeling then surfing. I think everyone should try it at least once.

    I've been surfing since I was eight,

    I'm sixteen now. And it's really given me a sense of emotional and physical well-being. It's whipped my body into shape and also my mind. Being able to make split second decisions is a perk. :) more physical attributes though, the tan skin, and the nice beach hair. Haha! I live...

    Need To.

    I cannot live without surfing. Yeah, I know, "You won't die If you go without surfing" Trust me. If I don't surf, I won't be a cheerful person. It started when I was six, now 12 years later the ocean feels like a second home to me. I could never just stop. I need it, like people...

    You Can't Beat the Ocean

    The ocean is so beautiful and nurturing I could stay in the water all day.  Once I'm in you would have a hard time getting me outta there.  One thing I've learned though is you can't beat the ocean.  You can enjoy it, play in it and appreciate it but you sure can't...
