Two hours surfing, two hours bodyboarding. Sore as hell now.
Nobody was there except me and four other guys. 9-10’ 8 seconds, offshore 30-40 mile hour winds, 55f.
Waves were sectiony with occasional waves that went across the entire point unmolested by close outs. To be out there pretty much alone gave me a giant smile the whole time, most frustration to be found surfing, most fun bodyboarding.
Paddle like hell for a wave to find high tide messing with the faces making the drop sometimes elusive.
Want it a great workout? Strap on a pair of fins and bodyboard for a few hours. See what happens to your body. Neck, all muscles above my belly button feel like I got hit by a train. All muscles below my belt (except one) feel like I got tackled by an NFL linebacker.
If if I did that every day or even twice a week my body would revert back into what I looked like in college. Great way to spend New Year’s Day!
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.
