Ok. I give. Even a strong-willed girl like me will eventually figure out when to throw in the towel. Maybe it’s not in the cards for me to catch my own waves on this trip. After all, I’ve only been surfing a month now and as I’ve been told a few times before, I may need to do a little expectation management.
So I decided to use today’s session, the last one of the trip, to practice my duck dive. This is the way that surfers push themselves and their boards under an oncoming wave while paddling out to the lineup.
