Beginner Surfing On Maui

Those who know me well would know that this is a big deal. I never thought I’d surf in my whole life – never! I am such a chicken when it comes to swimming, especially in the ocean. I also am very uncoordinated and not sporty. Well, my friend Sol who is a great surfer never gave up on me. She taught me how to surf. And thank to Sol, I did! Here’s the proof:

In this first photo, I was quite scared. I was still very hesitant. I thought I would make a fool of myself if I try….


But I tried anyway. This is the first attempt. Not bad…


Getting up… Sol said “look up … never look down …”


And up …. I stood! and I tried to balance…


And I surfed! I can’t believe it, I surfed!


Thank you Sol! Thank you very much for being such a great surf instructor!


And here’s Sol for the “real surf” photo. She’s amazing!

She’s pretty amazing!

    So very impressed you did this!! I am inspired–not to surf, but to try something challenging and new.

    Great job!

    Very impressive. Great photos, too. You must be athletic — it would take me a week!
