The Best Feeling In Surfing

Maybe the best feeling in surfing is catching a wave with your son & watching him climb unsteadily to his feet for the first time.
Here's our Noa last week, finding his feet at the very same beach I learnt to surf at over twenty five years ago, with his grandfather sitting out the back beaming with pride. At one stage, all three of caught a wave together & it was one of life's good goosebump moments: three generations sharing a significant experience in a surfing life.
We hit this bank as a family together for five days straight: five days of surfing, bodysurfing, hole making, sandcastling, wave jumping, icy-pole eating goodness. Our car looks like a sandpit. We're all a little sun-touched & surfed out.
