Day 177: Surfing lessons

The water was not warm, but it still felt good to be riding the waves! I have never surfed before, but there is always time to try new sports. I did manage to stand up on my board a few times during our 2 hour lesson, but mostly I just banged my feet on the rocky bottom and sucked in salty water. Our teachers held our boards and then told us when to stand up as they pushed the board up on the waves. We were never more than chest deep. Hilariously fun. I imagine that if I were a volunteer on the beach that I would want to turn this sport into a hobby. - Libby
