“My partner and I made a pact that every year we try to learn something new.

This year the challenge was surfing. Of course, my partner was a natural. I on the other hand needed a little help. Thankfully our instructor was so patient. He kept assuring me that I was going to get it and that it was worth the effort. He was right!

I will never forget that feeling when my board started gliding with the full power of a wave behind it. I was instantly hooked! Having the waves all to ourselves in a gorgeous setting never hurts. We both loved it so much that we immediately started planning our surf trip for next year. Just like that we are hooked!”
