This summer Tim and I have made progress. He finally took up the challenge to re-teach me how to surf – now that I have my wetsuit there is no excuse. Thankfully for him I’ve had multiple bouts of lessons during my teenage years. It’s just unfortunate that I never picked up my board in between all those beach holidays, or I could be a pro by now (in my dreams). I might not remember much, but at least I know how to stand.
Some days I want to be rich and successful, other days I would be quite content bumming around at the beach for the rest of my life. All these hopes that I will one day actually be able to surf by myself have me re-surfacing one of my oldest desires – to road trip around the Australian coast line. The only rule is to always chill out. All you need is your little car, a tent, some company, and the surfboards. Then come what may.
First I want to get one of these Ola Para Siempre surfboard covers – Sina is an amazing Australian creative, and one of these would make even my foamy look cool. And then we go, with salty hair and (hopefully) tanned skin.
