Thing #17 – Learn to surf
My second lesson and the first three photos in this album pretty much sum up my day on the board. Can you guess which one I am in the first photo?:)
I scooted down from Noosa Nanna’s (blog about Nanna and Noosa coming soon) house yesterday and arrived in the Gold Coast where I’m staying with my lovely friends Tom and Janice who have spoiled me rotten since I arrived.
Janice’s amazing son Daen took me out on the waves today during his lunch hour and tried his very best to get me standing upright. I did it….once!:)
It was such fun and I absolutely loved it. There’s something quite magical about being out on the waves. I’ve wanted to do this since I was a little boy and it is even better than I imagined it would be. This is definitely something I’m going to peruse in the future and this is definitely one for your lists. World Surfing Championships 2030 here I come!:)
Thank you so much to Daen for giving up his lunch hour and for being such fun.
A few more lessons and I’ll be as good as Daen!
Next stop Brisbane!
