Surfs Up!

May 22, 2012

After the short work stays, it was mid January, the height of summer. It was time for more beaches and I had figured out what I wanted to do: Surf. Having never surfed before I went for lessons in Raglan, a town on the northern west coast known for surfing… and not much else.

I love surfing, and Raglan had a really nice vibe that was easy to slip into. I signed up for two days, but ended up staying a week!

Despite the surfing schools assurance that “surfing is easy, and most people stand up on the first try,” my standard position for the first two days was as above. Although I had a rocky start, it was a great experience, and I progressed pretty fast. By the end I could easily stand on the board.
