Just became a Dad last weekend, definitely give up a day of surfing to hang with my daughter. But I hope eventually she'll paddle out with me.
Congrats! I'm a new dad too (since the day of Hurricane Sandy Oct. 29). Seeing that he was born on one of the biggest-ever days in MD history, I'm hoping he will love the water. We took him to the Caribbean two weeks ago and got him wet...he loved it! Stay positive, and enjoy the little angel!
