I think I want to learn how to surf!
On Sunday, my boyfriend and I went to the beach and in anticipation that he'd be preoccupied with windsurfing, I asked him to bring along his surfboard. I have to say, the thrill of learning something new is very intoxicating. It reminds me of that pure thirst for knowledge. I've always been obsessed with extreme sports, of sorts, particularly longboarding but it's been a while since I was really "learning" anything, mainly because I've gotten increasingly afraid of getting hurt (who isn't!?)
But as a hobby? I can definitely learn to ride for fun. Learning to sit on the board proved challenging enough. I guess what I like about it is this idea that it's challenging enough where I feel like I'm learning something totally new, but still in my realm of abilities (or at least I like to think so). Will definitely have to learn to swim (I know, that would help) and that should take care of my fear of leaving the shore. Once we move in July, I'm sure many weekends will be spent learning!
