I'm learning to surf and today's small waves in Assateague were just about what I needed. Still working on standing on the board but I'm catching the waves and getting used to the drop. I paddled out last Sunday in bigger waves at high tide and didn't do so well but at least I was out there!
Thanks to all the local surfers out there who have been so supportive of me trying to learn. I definitely appreciate the mellow, tolerant vibe. I have to say, whether it's big waves or small, and whether I'm standing on the board or just getting up on my knees I love being out there. There's just nothing better.
I'm new too, just bought my first board I've paddled out a few times and ridden a few, but haven't gotten to pop up yet. Might go out today for a couple of hours...would definitely like to be better before the season starts next year so I don't look too much like a fool!!
