What the Sea Means to Me
Forgive the cliché...but...I could not picture my life without the sea and really it's this which anchors my surfing. I know it's a controversial position, but for me, surfing is one activity, I also love SUP, windsurfing, kiteboarding, sailing etc. The sea has never failed to keep grounding me throughout my life nor be unbelievably beautiful (even whilst surfing in Scarborough!), but it is surfing which leaves the closest feeling to that body of water and the greatest joy when things finally work out. There is nothing like catching a morning wave just as the sun is rising and grinning like an idiot at nothing more than simply being sat out there.
