Our friend Yvo Chichizola, who is building a bungalow on property very close to us, is here visiting and overseeing the work on his construction. Yvo was a world class surfer in his prime. I asked him to give me a surfing lesson, as this is something I have never tried. I was lots of fun and I hope to talk him into a couple of follow-up lessons while he is here.
He makes it look sooooo easy!
And it is so not!
There were several other people on the beach and in the water, so I was a bit nervous about being able to avoid them.
I was able to catch several waves and get up on my knees. I just didn’t have the strength to “pop” up onto my feet. More work on the ground and training exercises here I come!
I’ve also made some good progress on my terrace furniture. It was really exciting to get past the drudgery of sanding each piece and start the assembly. Two more chairs to go and a coffee table.
