I did try once – I just failed to stand up on the board! As someone born in Australia, I feel I am supposed to know how to surf (stereotype I know).
I was terrified of the sea growing up (crocodiles and Great Whites seem to have always been about when I attempted it), so it wasn’t until I moved to the U.K. and spent time down in Cornwall, did I try again. I can windsurf, so that’s a start, but my attempts in 2004 to stand on the board were futile, although I had loads of fun even if it did rain most of the weekend.
So, at some point soon, I will try again. Hopefully all this training for the treks will give me more strength, and the pilates classes will give me some core strength too!
