Surfing in Cabarete, DR

Hey, guys!

I hope this post finds you in a good mood because you’re going to get a kick out of it.Well, you may or may not but I’m putting it out anyway.

Remember when I said I want to try surfing again in Costa Rica? It’s because I failed woefully at it in the Dominican Republic.

The 6-year-old behind me looked like he’d been surfing since birth.

Obviously, the 10-minute lesson outside the water + the lessons we got in the water were not adequate for me. 

Besides causing injury to my friend’s thigh with my surfboard (sorry Gina), and my many failures, we had a really fun day. I will stand on a board one day, but until then, you’re invited to laugh at my struggles.

My falls = someone else’s pain. 

Not once did I graduate from kneeling on the board. All attempts to stand were met with water to the face. Sigh, I’m sure the feeling of getting it right is liberating.

This, my friends, is the face of acceptance. 

Have any of you tried surfing? It doesn’t look THAT hard when other people do it right?? Leave me a comment to let me know!

Until next Friday, 

Thanks for reading!

    Hahaha! I love this! Love your face of acceptance too! Looks like a whole lot of fun and I’m pretty confident I’ll turn out worse than you when I try this.

      LOL. Thank you girl. I was so close to being frustrated at myself but I thought “what good will that do me”. It’s honestly one of the hardest activities I’ve attempted so far. Haha, you might not suck as much as you think you will. I hope you have fun when you do try it.
