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.
