Pretty incredible sport. After getting the equipment it's free- nobody to tell you when you can get in the water, nobody telling you to get out. Get in before the sun is even making the horizon light and get out when the lights on the Newport bridge are brighter than the sky. Drive twice the speed limit to get there, and half the speed limit on the way home. Think about the next time you are going so toiling at work ain't so bad. Show pics, videos, tell stories to relive the fun. Talk about the times you feel you almost died( stretch the truth a tad) to add some life to an otherwise boring story. See the sand on the floor of the truck and smile. Feel the endorphins coursing through your veins for hours and hours after you get out. Just try to get out of bed to the next morning when the slightest move hurts. Stayin' alive. Putting off playing golf for when I can't do this anymore (50 years from now).
Hi, my name is
David Benjamin and I started swimming in Chappaqua, NY., swam for Badger swim team, Mercersburg Academy, NC State University, then Westport YMCA masters. I got bored of the ol' back and forth of competitive swimming and the high cost of skiing. Surfing took over and I never looked back.
