Running after the two year old future track start along the soft white beach sand this morning, I saw a trio of eager long boarders in the surf. Patiently, the young guys wait. Their best hope today is to catch a wave that allows them to stand on the board for five seconds before plopping into the cold ocean.
The waves here are placid for the most part. Nothing like watching the professionals on Maui’s North Shore be thrown through the air on fiberglass missiles. Despite the non-threatening appearance of the ocean today, I still remember how overwhelmed we human beings can be versus some water.
Below is an amazing video in this week’s Tuber of the Week (fitting since it has a vacation feel to it).
That wave is 65 feet or so high, and the surfer, Mike Parsons, illustrates the physical potential in us “insignificant” folks.
