Nowhere To Surf

It would be cool to learn to surf, but when you live here that isn’t something that you can easily do. Indeed, it’s a bit location specific. We can skateboard here, however, and I have some friends who are really into tricks, but I’m not that good at it although I still enjoy riding around. I think that one thing that makes skateboarding different from surfing is that you may have a little more control on a skateboard since it has wheels, and you don’t have to maintain a certain momentum to stay up. At least, I’m guessing that’s how it is because I’ve never surfed before. There are a few places I would like to visit where they offer lessons, though, and that would be on my list of things to do. But as for here I will have to stick with things that are available. I don’t think any of my friends have gone surfing, either, so I have no one to ask how it was, although I’ve seen pictures and stuff and it definitely seems like it would be cool. I would probably have to borrow a board from someone because I don’t think I would buy one if I were just taking lessons, but they might have some for you, too. So that’s another thing I would need to ask.

When I think of surfing it makes me think of people who are pretty relaxed and enjoying what they do. I bet that is part of what people enjoy and what makes them like it since not only is it probably something that is actually entertaining to do but is also kind of good because you can associate with people who all have an easy going mindset. I could be wrong, but that’s what it seems like as someone who has never actually been around that type of activity. But really, if I’m going to learn I would need to go somewhere that has surfing in the first place. So, it’s either going to be something I can do on vacation, or something that I don’t get to do at all, because the closest thing around here is, well, I guess you could play a video game. And the other thing I was thinking is that I would need to get the appropriate basics down first. You probably can’t just go out there and get a wave and stand up so there is probably some other stuff you have to learn in order to be able to actually do it correctly.
