What Does It Feel Like to Surf?

By |January 11th, 2015|How To Do Things Related to Surfing|0 Comments

There’s a well know saying in the surfing world,  “Only a Surfer Know’s the Feeling”.   I do know how it feels to get back into the surf after a hiatus of a week or two.  It’s heavenly…..the ocean is so pure in her heart and actions. She will do what she will do and some of us mere humans get to know her and even be friends with her…..the ocean is always a place I can go to seek refuge from the manusha of life on the land.  Paying bills, organizing, scheduling, even cleaning all are not possible in the ocean, especially while surfing.  It’s a kind of meditative place where one can must and only focus on the moment.  Surfing also brings a  feeling of peace, health,  happiness and especially freedom.

Paddling out today on my way to work, I thought, wow who would have thunk 40 plus years later I’d still be living the dream on the North Shore of Oahu?  I tried to remember the first time I swam in her beautiful waters. I remember the first time I looked under the water at Waimea Bay with a mask, I freaked out and ran out of the water, blown away because it was so vast under the sea. I must have been 5 or 6 years old at the time and never would have dreamed of paddle out to the point to challenge myself in the waves. I remember Steve Albert, who still runs Rainbow school taking us students on field trips to bodysurf the shore break at Waimea and to swim through the secret tunnels of Sharks Cove. I remember riding The Bus from Kahaluu to Waialua to ride horses as a teenager and staring at the huge waves of Waimea memorized if only for a few seconds as we rode around the Bay in pre-traffic North Shore…..I remember my first time bottom turning at Pipeline….wow that was a cool day! So now so many, many years later […]
