First thing Monday morning (and really it was very early indeed) we left Byron for Spot-X, our surf camp and home for a day. Within an hour of arriving, we were learning the theory behind surfing. Shortly afterwards, I was wiping out on (huge) half foot waves..obviously very windy, you see. Practice and practice soon lead to a sort of successful 'surf'..if only soon to be corrected on my technique. Apparently it was a toddler trying to stand. Still, a couple of hours and going straight was achieved..so long as I was given a push when a wave was coming.
