A few weeks ago I just got back from a 12 day trip to Hawaii. Â And naturally while I was there I felt compelled to learn how to surf.Â I wanted to stand up on a board at least once while out there in the ocean.Â I managed to accomplish the feat but I tell ya it was damned hard.Â I fell more than I would have like to.
It made me realize how insane some of these big wave guys are.Â Sure they’re great at surfing and have tremendous balance and all, but when you see the consequences of making a mistake, it’s pretty brutal.
