This morning George and I took a 2 hour beginner surfing course. The first half hour we just learned to lie on our stomachs and paddle and then arch our backs as we caught the waves. Then we learned how to get up on the board and then we went and gave it a try. The first few times we completely failed...
...then we started to get the hang of it.
It wasn't as hard as I thought it would we be, but it was tiring.
