Do you see those cliffs? That pretty mist? And the stunningly blue ocean? I don't think it's possible to not have a total blast in any situation involving all three of those things. Even if you are drinking your weight in seawater, paddling around the biggest waves you've ever experienced firsthand (you know, like in the water), and confident that your muscles are just going to fall off and die of exhaustion at any moment. I think what I really mean by surfing is just flailing around in the ocean with a giant yellow thing attached to my ankle. But there was that one time I caught the tiniest of waves and stood up for an impressive 2.47 seconds (give or take a little). And that, my friends, was the best.
