Wayback Wednesday: Blue Hawaii

Posing with my surfboard in Hawaii...
Back in the days when I still had abs...
I'm looking forward to hitting the surf and water at various points on Vancouver Island this summer, starting this upcoming long weekend.

This REALLY OLD! old photo from thirty something years ago was taken in Hawaii. It was my first surfing experience and I learned the hard way that short boards aren't for beginners. I spent all of my afternoon falling off my board into the water, while watching native 12-year-olds deftly carving around me in the water on their short boards.

Another nice thing about surfing in Hawaii? Wet suits aren't part of the surfing experience unlike here on Vancouver Island where year round water temperatures of 5 degrees C make them a necessity.
