I'm stressed out about this trip. You're talking hours and minutes... I gotta know what you're doing every second. I think you should rethink your board choice. A lot of the locals down there don't like people that bring al merricks, especially motorboats. Have you thought about that yet?
What color board shorts are you wearing? You need to be aware of the colors you shouldn't wear in certain areas. don't want to get a good leash choke because you wore your shorties that match your fins or something, that would suck.
HAhaha I kinda want to give you a hug right now. This is pretty cute.
Kid the best trips are the ones where things don't go exactly as planned. No one remembers the things that happened right but the things that went wrong and we somehow made it through. You learn and grow from making mistakes. You probably haven't had a lot of opportunities to make mistakes yet in your life but your time will come. It's abut how you react to your mistakes and overcome them that matters. I mean don't go out looking to F up but if you do.... Oh well, get un-F'd and move along.
A bit of personal advice for this trip is to take it for what it is, a pretty sweet cruise with your friends and family with a very small window for surf. If you go out there and score some thats great but don't let it ruin your trip or your family's trip if you don't... Remember it's a cruise not a "surfin safari" eat some good food, try to swipe a bottle of Bacardi one night (don't F up though), maybe try to find a nice girl to talk to and thank whoever is dragging you along on their vacation.
Do you have an uncle named Gruvi? Or maybe he was a mailman in your neighborhood a few years back :eek:
It appears you may have some of his blood in your family tree. He's got a dump truck load of positive attitude and energy that most of us wish we had.
Just kidding, keep the stoke and enjoy the trip.
