Second Surf and Still Cant Stand!

24th October

sunny 27 °C

We woke up this morning for the second time to the tune of some guy learning to play the drums in the apartment block behind us, really annoying. And this morning I was Aching so much!!! We didnt have time to do much this morning, our lesson was at 11am so we got ready and headed out. Again we made time for SEJUICED, we couldnt resist, Ashley had Ruhbarb and Yoghurt this morning and i had fruit salad and we both had Banana bread, which is really popular alternative to bread over here. So after this we headed for our lesson, got wetsuits on again and headed out. Today there was about ten of us, they asked us who were very beginners and who had had a few lessons, so they split us up. To make numbers meet, they put me and Ashley in the not beginners group, cringe! i soon learnt that everyone could stand up in this class, and to me at least they looked pretty good, so i was scared again, because i couldnt even do the technique of standing up on the beach let alone in the water, and ashley was good at it on the beach!! hmmm... so on our way out and when i started to get battered i was ready to quit but our instructor, today a girl told me not to give up and to at least try it... so i did! Wow, im so happy i did, we didnt get as many waves today, was quieter, but we went further out, and i got ONE LEG UP!! HAHA! i tried to stand up, but after paddling over the waves my arms couldnt even hold me up, so i had no chance, but ya know one leg is good enough for me. As for Ashley he stood up once, but when we had come back in the shallow. We came out of the water happier than yesterday, and i think im hooked!!! the thing about surfing is, that even if your really rubbish, its still fun, i got battered through falling off today but we still came up smiling, its so good when the wave brings you in!!! We did however both come in Knackered, our arms Ache, our legs ache, so tomorro should be... fun! The plan after the lesson was to go home for lunch, but walking past the surfish cafe we couldnt resist so went here again, was sooo good! It was really hot today so we headed to the pool for a swim, rounded off an ace day.
I'm so glad now that we tried surfing, whether i stand up or not tomorro i still enjoyed surfing and think Everyone should try it!! I only wish they did it in England more because i think we would have had a few more lessons!!
