On Wednesday I went surfing, I was out there with about 50 other people. But, out of those 50 dudes, only 5-10 were actually catching all the waves. The other 40 guys were all missing out. Why?… They were either sitting in the wrong spot, too lazy to paddle for waves, too scared they were Read more about Where there’s a will, there’s a wave[…]
“No. You can’t do that.” As a child, you hear this saying a lot. Adults tell you what you can and can’t do. And, rightfully so. My parents told me NO a lot and stopped me from making some really bad decisions as a kid! But now that I’m a self sufficient adult I’m Read more about Why not?[…]

I was out surfing yesterday. The weather was perfect, waves were great, and I even saw some baby dolphins jumping around nearby! I was loving life. But as I swam past a couple other guys, I overheard them talking… They were complaining that the water was too cold, the tide was too low, and they Read more about Why are you in the water?[…]
While surfing yesterday I noticed everyone was divided into 2 groups out in the water. The good surfers were way out at the deepest break, competing for the better waves. And the newer/beginner surfers all sat in a pack much closer to shore and caught the leftovers. I’m experienced enough to surf in either spot, Read more about Who are you surfing with?[…]
