Lots of surfing or what passes for it

I should probably create a new category for surfing, because that is all I have been doing recently and, therefore, all I have to write about.

I have been trying to go as much as possible since Golden Week and it seems like I have been making progress. I have been reading the waves better, my timing has improved, and usually I am putting my feet where they should go, so I don't immediately fall off. Naturally, I am happy with that.

Well, until today that is! I managed to cut open my foot (not serious) and lose my contact lenses. Today being the first time for both and probably because I spent more time tumbling in front of the waves than riding on them. I just felt out of sync all day. In terms of getting better, it always seems like it is two steps forward and one step back. Today was the step back. On the other hand, a month ago I would never have considered going in with conditions like today's, so I suppose that is progress of a sort. And it was fun, even if I was spending most of time tumbling through the surf.

And, yes, if there are waves I am going again tomorrow.
