I have never really surfed before in my life, nor had an opportunity to do so.  So, when a chance like this came up to go on a surf trip with two of my favourite guys how could I say no?  Surfing isn't like any other sport that I've tried, it has a community and a life style like no other.  I'm still at the point were the majority of the time I feel like I'm just getting beat up by nature, but then I catch one wave and it's all worth it.  I've only been surfing for about 5 days now and I understand how people can get hooked by this sport.  I can't wait to explore all that the ocean has to offer.
