I tried surfing for the first time. People ask if I had trouble staying on the board. I had trouble getting ON the board. This surfboard, aka, a waterproof tetter totter, didn't work well with me or I didn't work well with it. Either way, I sank deep into the ocean, almost was stung by a sting ray, had the board torpedo at my jaw and cause me to bite my tongue, and I flipped over countless times.

Nevertheless, although my body may disagree and the black bruises on my legs look unattractive, I vow to try again.

No, I did not ride any wave that day.
