    So we have a friend coming into town this weekend. He's from the east coast and never been out. I have a surf instructor friend whom I've not had a chance to connect with yet even though we've now made south Orange county our home for a month and a half (long story). So I text...

    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...

    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!

    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...

    Living in Australia and by the beach has the

    best advantages! I'm not a professional surfer but boy do I love being carried by waves! There is something just so calming and beautiful about the ocean and the waves and when you have a board, it's the perfect combination. Last night, I went night surfing with a few of my...

    Raised in Hawaii for 7 years,

    learning how to surf I would say was the best experience during my childhood. The beach, waves, the sand, weather, everything was just my place of content. I felt at home there. Surfing has taught me balance, but in a emotional standstill, it's taught me to face my challenges no...

    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...

    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...

    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'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...
