15,739 views 4 weeks ago
Surfing is like nothing else.  
It's frozen hands & fumbling keys.
It's being cleaned up by a closeout & coming up laughing.
Surfing is rubber arms and a dry wetsuit.
It's the first duck dive on a cold morning.
It's hot food, car heaters & the smell of coffee.
Surfing is paddling out somewhere you've never been.
It's step-ups, broken boards and long swims.
