Two day’s forecast with “normal” bumps peeking their measly heads above the oceans SURFace with weakling 6-7-8 second period waves. Don’t get me wrong, they’re really fun too. In fact, I’m going today with my kid (it’s Columbus Day- no, it’s “Native American day.” I’ve wanted to eliminate Columbus Day from my vocabulary for ten years). No school today so we are going surfing even if it isn’t the best conditions. The pitiful hurricane Nate is causing these waves, he went over land, lost his MOJO.
Swirling off the coast of Africa is tropical storm 17, though, some eyes watching it for waves ten days from now. Not getting my hopes up though. I’m finally resettling myself back into my normal life after the best surf month in history. Everyone runs when they see me coming, afraid that I will tell them (AGAINNN) about surfing last month.
My favorite surfing rock proudly sits on the kitchen table, refusing to be put with the others.
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.
