surf's up!

i'll say yes to surf lessons on a misty thursday morning with friends any day.
this was one of the things we were most excited for on the travel show,
and it turned out to be the best adventure. it's always bonding to do crazy things like this with friends, because you're all out there together falling, getting up, and hoping you don't get eaten by sharks {okay maybe that was just me thinking about that...} we surfed for a few hours and had the best time... but it was tiring carrying those 9 foot surfboards in and out of the rip tide over and over! we had the ocean and beach to ourselves, except with the camera crew some people started to come watch. i think they expected us to be pro surfers due to the cameras, so i'm sure they were surprised to see our {lack of} skills, ha. we loved it, and most of all thank goodness for wetsuits. bless whoever invented them.
loading up the surfboards at the cutest surf shop which supplied our wetsuits and boards
going over the scene with the director
and of course, getting makeup done even for surfing scenes! 
haha it all came right off with the first slap of freezing saltwater to the face.
my poor arms are still sore thinking about how many times 
i lifted this thing in and out of the water + waves!
the wetsuits made the water bearable, but the hot tub did feel pretty nice later!
see our dreamy beach house here, and our yoga over the ocean here!

  3. I have never been surfing but I really want to do it now.

  4. I learned how to surf when I was 16 and have never had the chance to go again! It was the most liberating experience and the greatest feeling in the world. So glad you had a chance to surf it up! You all look so awesome and professional :)
