|My friend and I attempting to surf. That's myself on the right.|
But anyway, the other day I finally went surfing! Something I'd longed to do for years but never actually got around to it, well that's half a lie. When I was in Australia a few years ago, I did try on a friend's board.. ON BONDI BEACH! But it didn't go so well. Like a lot of beaches there's the swimming part of the beach and surfing part. And generally the surfing parts can be shallow one minute and deep the next. Which I discovered in a panic and then swam back in. Mind you I was probably only 13 and was only going to be on the beach for a few hours so decided to enjoy myself without getting the living s*** kicked out of me with fear.
Back to that glorious day, when I rode a few waves in the Atlantic.
|Yea its super shallow.. I know :P|
As I've blogged about over and over the last week or so, the weather was scorching. It was actually the hottest day that week with temperatures of over 28 degrees Celsius. I know I know its probably the normal summer temperature for most of you out there. But not in Ireland! Four of us went surfing down in Inchydoney, a beautiful big white sanded beach in west Cork. We got a half an hour lesson and an hour and a half free time surfing. I really didn't have high expectations for my self as my friend had went surfing before and found it very hard to stand up on the board.
But little did I expect having never surfed before, that I'd be the first to stand up and catch a wave! It was so much fun! Had a nice sunbath on the beach after and a lovely meal in the adjacent hotel. I'm on the look now for a surfboard, I defiantly want to take it up as a hobby!

Have a super day!
