Everybody's gone surfing

Last weekend we had a girly weekend in Croyde, Devon where I had my first try at surfing. I have been body-boarding a few times before but this was my first attempt at surfing. It was really difficult but great fun. Sarah gave us a few lessons in the living room before we left and made it look really easy. Paddle paddle paddle, jump - easy! However once we got out to sea it was no way that easy. Getting out to sea was hard let alone getting on the board and paddling and to even attempt to jump - that was just plain crazy! I did get up on to my knees which was a great achievement. It was hard work and I struggled to carry my board back to the car afterwards, my arms ached for ages.

It was great fun though and with a full wetsuit, boots and gloves it was even quite warm! Planning the next trip.....


After I have a rest that is.....
