It’s the salty smell of the ocean crashing against the shore and the wet sand between your toes. It’s the first chill as you step into the blue waters and the waves jumping excitingly around your legs. It’s the way the ocean rises and falls in perfect harmony as you paddle hard to gain momentum over each wave. It’s the moment when you catch that perfect wave and glide along its ridge that you understand why a surfer’s soul is bound to the deep blue seas. Why they live to put their boards to the waters and forget the world around them. It’s just them and the waves. There’s nothing better than a day of sun, sand and surfing!
