OK - So on my post from Sunday, I mentioned that I wanted to learn to surf next year and that Jamie and Phill had talked me into going down to the beach with them to have a go.
Well today was the day!
For those of you who have a nervous disposition, please look away now - there will be photo' s of me in a wet suit!
I managed to get my own suit on Monday afternoon, I got a bargain, and it's a full body suit too - at least I knew I would be warm.
OK - so photo's coming up! - that's me with my arms in the air!
But look at the size of the wave coming up behind me!
Another thing I should mention..... I have never ever gone in the sea further than my ankles before - EVER! So when I tell you that the fourth wave caught me by surprise and I went straight under, mouth and eyes open, it came as a bit of a shock..... Poor Jamie stood over me asking "OMG are you OK?" and all I could do was splutter and laugh that I was, and was grateful that my contact lenses were still intact!
Right - are you ready for the shock picture then,
If so continue as normal
If not scroll down fast!
I came out just long enough to say hi to Sally-Ann, who was my official photographer for the afternoon, and then I was off back in again.... Who knew wave jumping could be such fun.... the boogie board did not even come off the beach!
Finally, the lads said we should go back in, and we headed back to Sally-Ann, and Mel, who had also come along to watch the antics..... Time for another blog classic..... The perfect surfing memory, me and my lovely men
Thanks for forcing my hand guys - I really enjoyed myself, and can't wait for the next time
