Gone Surfin'

We've been threatening to do it since forever! So a few weeks ago, we headed out to the Warringah Mall's branch of Surf, Dive, Ski (SDS) and bought ourselves a couple of body boards, fins & shortie wetsuits. And then we hit the waves.....

I was ready with the camera for Scott's first surf.


Surferboy hits Mona Vale beach


Ready to go....





Hit play to watch his progress


A little out of breath but the smile says it all!


Enough with the camera already! I can't breath!


Still learning how to work that damn zip


Yes, he managed to snap off a shot of me before I hit the water

And now with daylight savings, there's even time for a surf after work - which we've done a couple of times already. It's amazing how the work day disappears as soon as you hit the water. Wonderful! :-)

That's it for now!

Are they seals, maybe whales, or maybe South Africans now living the good life. Be careful out there, remember, shark see food, shark eat food, and you can't fool a shark. Hmmmm, must say wet suits look a little "tight", or maybe just the light. Keep on having fun, and enjoy the opportunities that life has given you.

I don't know about the water but the sand looks good to me. What I would give for a long walk (barefoot) along the edge of the water right now.....
