I loved wake-boarding as a kid. Then one day my sister died in a boating accident, and the whole thing turned monstrous. This is a really unique image though, and images like this one open up very deep caverns in my life.
Rent a soft surfboard your very first time out. Don't invest in your own surf board if you've never ever attempted surfing before. At a lot of beaches helpful for surfing, rental areas will be offered near to the beach, offering reasonably inexpensive.
