be one with the board, not the bored
OK, so this surfing thing is a little tougher than those 20 - something's make it look. Special thanks to Mike the teacher for recognizing that an aging hippy-wanna-be required a little extra attention to actually stand on the board - on top of the water. Mission accomplished and yes, there is photographic evidence! Same evidence will be posted soon after I have a nap or a beer, whichever makes most sense. A quart or so of aloe vera on my forehead might be a good idea too.
No Seniors tour surfing scouts were in attendance today, but the other 4 kids in my lesson group applauded my efforts when I finally got up - or were they just glad that they could finally get out of the water? I'm thinking about a remedial class on Kauai next week.
Still hangin' loose and free on Maui.
