Anyone here like to surf?

Grew up surfing ages 11-28. It was a very exciting, fun, healthy, healing, elating sport. I thank God for allowing me to participate in his creation. Unfortunaltey, adulthood came calling. Fell out of surfing with responsibilities etc. Hoping to get back in the ocean soon.

Ever since I saw Jaws, I will not get back into the ocean. I did try water skiing once, on a lake, but then I remembered the Loch Ness monster, so I stopped going in lakes.

I can definitely see you as a surfer, Paul.

I did a search of your posts, and it had 95 posts of you calling someone "dude".
:rockcool:

Hey dude, wanna catch some gnarly waves?

Around here, usually someone uses the term "dude" whenever they're irritated or being dismissive of someone.

Love the waves, just body surfing is fine for me. Couldn't swim out for a while when my kids were younger. Now they're older 3 out of 4 are able to swim, it's easier to get some time to myself for a bit. It was amazing seeing my daughter (9) and eldest son (7) swim out together, going under waves and the like. Some really big ones.

Then one day my daughter got a little too confident, started swimming out by herself away from me. Tried calling out to her, as waves were really strong and kept coming in groups, figured she might freak out. A few hit consecutively and gave her a few mouthfuls. She panicked, started crying, but was otherwise doing fine.

I had my son on me and had to take him into shallower waters before swimming to get her. Another woman helped my daughter, and although she was generally fine, gave me a bad look like what a bad father. I wasn't too concerned, as I'd seen her the days before and knew she can swim well, but it would have looked quite bad. :P After that incident though, my daughter's confidence went from 1000 to 0 the rest of our holidays.

K,

With creatures like box jellyfish, Irukandji jellyfish, Blue-ringed octopus, bull sharks, and crocs,
you look like a bad father if you let your children go anywhere near your beaches!

Be a good, normal father, and keep the kids in the house playing Xbox or monopoly.
