I learned how to surf with my girlfriend in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua.  $25 for a lesson and board to surf on all day.  The beach is called Playa Maderas and it was a great beach to learn to surf. 

Here is a video of my time in San Juan Del Sur.  The surfing starts about halfway through.

 A bit too small waves for my tasting and I am not sure I can call me a surfer yet but I tried and managed to catch a wave or two.

 I have surfed with the help of my cousin, Kelsey once. I would love to learn more and go further with this bucketlist item but I technically can check this one off the list

I first took a lesson in surfing in Domburg, Netherland.

This is one of the surfspots in Holland. The waves aren't as big as you see in the movies, but they were big enough to learn some surfing. First I had chosen a bad day for surfing, because there were no waves. Second time I came around the waves were quiet big for a beginning surfer. I've had a lot of fun and a few days later I rent a surfboard and tried it on my own.

For sure I will keep trying to handle it and teach some tricks. For me it wasn't a sport I could handle directly, but that keeps me motivated and gives me some challenging effects.

 Taught how to surf in Hoddevika, Norway, and also got another lesson in Byron Bay, Australia. Love to surf, but it's soo hard! But it's absolutely worth it, when you make your first wave! (The photo is from Byron)

 My mum had recently died and my life felt a mess and I needed to get away from everything and everyone. I booked myself onto a learn to surf week in Lanzarote. It was hard work, I ended up bruised all over but it was great fun and helped me through the grieving process.

We took surfing lessons in Byron Bay Australia. Can't say I've learnt how to surf but at least I tried my best! It is so hard to find the balance.

 I'm afraid of sharks and deep water even though I've always been a strong swimmer. I would like to overcome that fear.

Done: Swallowed a lot of saltwater. I was worried about sharks but fatigue and seasickness took my mind off it quickly. I caught a few waves and it felt good. I'm not at the point of realizing when I've caught the wave until the ride is halfway done. The part I liked best was learning to read the waves. It's very peaceful and meditative.
