This weekend, I was down in north Cornwall for a friend’s stag party. Thankfully the weekend wasn’t all about beer and bad behaviour, as we’re all getting a bit old for that sort of thing. We spent most of our time at the beach. I hired a longboard and tried my hand at surfing, a first for me. I was pretty hopeless and spent most of the time falling off and half drowning, but…it was rather good fun. There were even a few brief moments when I managed to stand up on a wave, which was actually really something, as experiences go.
Of course I’m far too old for this sort of thing and I should be more sensible, but…later on, in the shop, I couldn’t resist. I had to have me a longboard of my own.
