For those who surf, you all know the feeling. You paddle out on a day with those 6-10 ft waves. and all you can think is: “Oh Boy”. That is what we felt today when our little boat arrived at Airport Rights. Am I ready for this? Can I handle this? All kinds of different thoughts going through your mind and most of them are related to fear. But what happens when you really leave that fear behind. We saw this wave around 7 ft approaching and thought, this is ours!!. Paddled our asses off to avoid another surfer taking it away.And before we knew it we were there. Made the drop, popped right up and this amazing feeling of empowerment and adrenaline overwhelmed us while surfing one of those bigger ones.
We realised that fear is there to leave behind. It can make you conscious of a certain situation but most of the time it is a bad adviser. So leave it behind and ride those amazing waves.
