On Monday I had my second attempt at taking to the waves. Lessons learnt:
1. The surf is easier at low tide, but also more boring.
2. Somehow after the second attempt the bruises hurt more. (Either because at low tide you hit the sand earlier, or because you try more things!)
3. Surfing in loose seaweed is horrible! At one stage I felt like I had my feet caught in a net and I started to have fears that I would be entangled and swept out to sea. Apart from worrying about what poisonous or prickly things might also be caught in the seaweed.
4. Surfing is still fun!
All of a sudden winter seems to be suggesting itself in the Eastern Cape. This will have an effect on my surfing progress!
