Top Ten

Things I learned in my surfing lesson today:

1. Oh. That's what it feels like to be in the washing machine spin cycle. 
2. Oh. That's what it feels like to be shot out of a cannon.
3. The ocean always wins.
4. Bruises are sexy. 
5. Don't bother doing your hair. 
6. When you wipe out, protect your head from the board.
7. Wetsuits are slimming. (Although you'll probably break a nail getting into one.)
8. Must. Relinquish. Control. 
9. I'm goofy - means I put my right foot forward on the board.
10. The sweet spot's pretty sweet.


  1. You're learning to surf? How cool is that?

    I should take up a hobby that requires me to relinquish control. I need to learn how to do that!

  2. SCARY! I've got this long-standing tradition of not liking being in the water, especially deep dark water where I can't touch the bottom and little fishies are around me. I'll have to stay on the beach and watch you.

  3. Hey, just in time for International Surfing Day on June 20!
