Surf school

The sun came out this week, and it's a fine, bright day at the beach. All along the sand canopies of surf schools are hung with towels and drying wet-suits that flap in the breeze.

Kneeling in the sand as the wave that brought him ashore recedes.

The kids have dragged their boards down to the hard-packed wet sand, where they dig holes for the water to fill. Then it's time to go back into the waves.

I wish I was at the beach. How cold is that water?

Neat pictures. I always thought surfing was so difficult to do. Now at least I know you can get lessons! But I am still afraid! ;-D

Thunder - it's cold enough serious swimmers and surfers wear wetsuits if they're going to be out there long - but of course that's also all about being cool, too. It's colder than the Atlantic.

Now that's what I call a beach! Looks wonderful, and such a gorgeous colour of the sea!

So beautiful. I want to be on that beach NOW. I'll hopefully get some much missed beach time soon - but on the opposite coast. No surf boarding, but body surfing - YES.

I miss the beach. Of course, I am much more familiar with the Washington Coast, but any Pacific Ocean beach makes me happy.
