Surf's up

I’m now back from the most beautiful week of sun and sea in Maine and I’ve got surfing on the mind. I’ve only been back on home continental turf for less than two days- but how I could easily slip back into the curl of the ocean’s waves.

Not surprisingly, I’m interested in bodyboarding since I spent the week perfecting catching waves on Ogunquit Beach. Bodyboarding is easier to master than bodysurfing since you use the board to help catch the wave and ride its curl. Bodysurfing involves your body riding the wave with your head pointing facing down and your hands extending in front of you like an arrow as the wave propels you forward. Both are fun, and while I’m slowly picking up the tricks of the bodysurfing trade, bodyboarding is proving to be a lot of fun.

What’s your ocean sport of choice?

    What a lucky duck you were to be riding the waves in Maine! I love this white boogie board and I’m impressed that you found one that wasn’t neon.
    Summer sport of choice for me is swimming…pools, oceans, lakes…love it all. I did take a surfing lesson when I was in Australia one year but, oh boy, I was horrible.
