Another day I had to cancel my surf lesson. There were NO waves…..hmmmmm How can I compete next year without 10,000 hours of practice?
Well, it’s ok. Either the waves have been too big or too small as of late. No problem! I sat on the beach and studied the water and the realized that I have no control! For a self-proclaimed control freak, that’s revolutionary! I must sit and wait and learn. My surf mentor taught me to learn the water, anticipate the waves, increase my water time.
So, if I cannot surf, then I watch, talk to the people who did venture out: what did they see/do/learn. I know my time will come. And when it does, I’ll be on the board and ready to take on the waves.
