ABC Wednesday: waves, water, wetsuits and W.W.W.







Schools out, and it is our summer holiday.
It is anything but hot.
The last ten days in New Zealand can be termed aptly as WET! WET! WET!
My 15 year old had been dreaming about surfing.
We enrolled him for a surf lesson.
We drove to Omaha to catch the waves.
It was cold and rainy. While he was warm and snug in his wet suit, I was shivering and dripping wet with a tourist from Germany.

Surfaris Surf School & Surf Tours, described by YHA NZ as 'A truly unforgettable experience' is a respected surf company operating across Northland offering surf lessons and surf tours to tourists and New Zealanders. The Surfaris all-inclusive surf tours travel to remote locations in search of good times and fun waves.

Love the beach scenes Ann, I think surfing is all that they say, it's great healthy outdoor fun BUT....it's all the nasties under the water that scare the life out of me!!
I checked, the Swan Brewery makes Swan, Emu, Hahn and Tooheys but not XXXX so must be a Queensland brew.

It looks a miserable day for surfing - but what do I know, never had the experience. Good luck to him!

Meryl said...

I don't surf but it does look like fun (hard work, but fun).

Wishing you a happy holiday!

Wanda said...

This is a great way to share the letter "W".

Martha Z said...

It looks like they were as wet out of the ocean as in it!

Looks like home to me! Carlsbad is a popular surfing spot. Great post.

Leovi said...

I like to take a surf lesson. Ann is my dream to have a studio someday. For now I have to settle for mounting and dismounting in the kitchen at home every time I make a photo shoot.

Wonderful, Ann to go surfing! My eldest daughter often went windsurfing here in the Netherlands. I don't know if she has her own board or a hired one!
Thank you for thinking of me in connection with the caroussel in Christchurch.
I wish you and your family a very happy Christmas and a happy New Year. Do you celebrate Chinese New Year too?

aka Penelope said...

Ann, my very best wishes to you and yours throughout the holidays and in the New Year. Hope you collect many happy memories. I had to laugh at the translation of WWW on your radio. Also, these suits are a great invention but a submarine would be a much warmer way to explore the depths of these chilly waters. :)

Happy summer surfing. I certainly hope your weather warms up a bit.
Happy Holidays too.

LifeRamblings said...

I dont know anything about surfing so even laying on a board sounds cool enough.

Francisca said...

That does look Wet, Wild and brrr... cold. Wonderful that your son braved it... I'm not so sure the Wet suit Would keep him Warm!

All the best of the season to you and yours, Ann!
