Leaning to surf is one of the most frustrating, yet wholly rewarding things a person can ever do. The process puts you through the emotional ringer. But fear not. We’ve all been there. Even Beyonce.
1) The first time you try to pop up
2) When the instructor tells you a joke about a Chinese wax job that you don’t understand, but laugh at anyway as to not appear uncool
3) The 34th time you try to stand up, only to fall back into the sea
4) When a local (in a wig) calls you a kook
5) When somebody tells you how many people have pissed in your rental wetsuit
6) When your instructor suggests “taking it back to the beach for a bit”
