Surfing With Dad

A Day in the LifeLeave a Comment

I don’t surf well but I like to be a part of the crowd. Feels like the thing you are supposed to do. And its just fun being out on a board in the ocean.

I had to talk Sydney into getting on a board this year after she watched Bethany’s movie about losing an arm to a shark.

I took Reagan out surfing. She was having a great time. We caught the first wave and went a good distance. She was so excited. She went in an bragged to everyone what a great ride she had.

Everybody (but Mom) goes. No choice.

So the next day, we went out again. Reagan and I immediately got pummeled by a big wave. She freaked out after getting knocked from the board. And my camera was off my head and into the surf. With another wave approaching and Reagan freaking out, I went for the kid instead of the camera to help her. She had a vest on and would have been fine but I felt like going for the camera was going to scar her for life. So I got her up on the board. I paddled around looking for the camera and she yelled at me about wanting to go and and something about not caring about my stinking camera. Pacific Ocean wins this time. A new GoPro will be on my doorstep when I get home.
