A lot of people don’t understand – or wouldn´t understand – the miracle that happens when you stand up on the surfboard for the first time. This time spent in the ocean forms our character: the more time you spend surfing the better person you start to become – which is also true the other way around. After a certain level! We need to strengthen our virtues because that way we can enjoy the moments more and more and we learn how to live in the present. Although water and the sun make us tired they also energize us! If an imaginary world existed where everyone surfed there would be plenty of waves and lonely moments for all of us. The Earth would surely be a better place.
