Once in, the REAL lessons started. My very first attempt (3 small pics below) show what happened on nearly every run. The uniqueness of this first fall? Well, let me just say that there is a reason not to fall IN FRONT of your board. The bump on my head is still quite large. Other than that, I had a marvelous time surfing and crashing into the ocean!!
Surfing in the ocean is better than any water theme park ride and I will definitely be doing it again! Thanks to Pablo, I caught probably 15 waves in 1 hour and by the end of that time I was ready for a break. I know now why there's no such thing as a fat surfer! Life is good!
Now, I have at least one New Year's resolution completed! Hopefully I'll have the chance to practice and get better at this new found fun!
Tomorrow, back to the travel log...heading to the jungle!
