LUV2SURF

by Colly

On Wednesday my family and I took a surf lesson at Broulee Beach near Batemans Bay, on the East Coast of Australia. Our teacher’s name was Meg. We went on a super hot day, and the freezing water felt really good against my tight wet suit. The beach was great! You can hear the waves roaring, then dragging on the bottom and dying. The waves are great and the sand is super soft. We had so much fun! In fact, we liked it so much, we surfed again on Friday!

Here are our surfing photos:

Meg was a great teacher, and she taught us this starting pose.

We finally started to get the hang of it! (This is Kyle.)

It was so great! I did it again and again.

My mom and dad loved it too!

Kyle and I went double, but we ended up capsizing :-)

I really hope I can surf again!

Thanks, Broulee Surf School, for the lesson and rentals.

  1. Wow! You guys look great! Like real pros… What a great experience for all of you. The ocean and sand look so clean and beautiful (different than what I’m used to in California). Love you guys!

  4. Colly,

    I already posted a comment on your mom’s blog about how much better YOU (and your brother and your dad) looked in the surf than she did. Your post (especially the bit about hearing “the waves roaring, then dragging on the bottom, then dying”) really brought back memories of surfing my sea kayak in Hawaii. So glad you got to do this; though I was surprised to hear the water was so cold. Guess you’re pretty far south; good thing you had wetsuits.

    Lots of love to all!
