TO TRULY UNDERSTAND THE SURF AND THE NATURAL WORLD, ONE MUST LOVE IT UNCONDITIONALLY. IT IS MUCH THE SAME IN BEGINNING TO UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER. EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS MOVING OUT IN THE WAVES AND THIS IS WHY SURFING BECOMES SUCH A BEAUTIFUL METAPHOR FOR LIFE. BECAUSE LIFE DOESN'T HOLD STILL FOR ANYONE, IF WE DON'T MOVE WITH IT, LIFE PASSES US BY. THE BASIC LESSON OF SURFING IS TO GO WITH THE FLOW SMOOTHLY AND BE IN THE MOMENT SPONTANEOUSLY. IN THIS WAY, WE GET THE MOST OUT OF THE WAVES
AS WELL AS OUT OF LIFE.
