Surfing First Day

A few weeks ago I won an auction at Breadline Africa’s Geek Fashion Show. The prize was surfing lessons AND lunch with Paul Cartmel with the money going to charity.??

??
Today, the Cape Town weather was perfect so I got the family in the car and cruised down to Muizenberg.??
??
Paul didn’t really bother to give me ‘lessons’: “It’s simple, you just catch a wave and jump up on the board and ride it”

Well, that’s right, but it’s not as easy as it sounds! On the other hand, it’s actually not as difficult as I thought it would be.??

Below are some photos and a video! (me in the surf, then Paul doing a self-portrait, then on the beach, then Paul & Toni at Knead Muizenberg and then Althea and me at Moyo in Big Bay for dinner)

  1. No lesson? hmm…surfing is like sex, the practical is far more important, 5 minutes of ???how to get up??? and 1.5 hours of ???getting stuck in??? 😉
