Body Boarding on My First Day

I’m in California now.  I love to bodyboard! Whenever I go to California body boarding and surfing are my favourite things to do because I get to paddle out and catch waves with my dad. I love when I catch a wave that’s really glassy and lasts a long time.

We wear wetsuits so we stay warm in the cool water. The waves are different every day. Sometimes they are huge but sometimes they’re small. I like the waves that are 5 to 6 feet tall and not too steep. Sometimes I catch a wave and I fall off and get sucked under the water. I’m always ok though.

My dad is a really good surfer. He catches the biggest wave in site and does big carves and turns.  Three years ago my dad  snapped a longboard and his short board in the same day. It was crazy!

I  swim out and use my GoPro to film my dad and my uncle surfing.  When I was a little kid my dad would pull me out to where the waves are breaking and he would push me into waves. I didn’t like it at first but I got used to it and it was pretty fun.  My dad is my hero and I look up to him.  I will be talking more about these topics during my three week holiday in California.


About Me

Hello everyone.   


My name is Evan.  I am 12 years old, in Grade 7 and I live in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. 


Some things I enjoy are… 

I love to mountain bike.  I go biking in the forest near my home and up my local mountain bike park.  I hit jumps and I love to ride flowy trials.  I also love to ski.  I like skiing powder and the terrain park.  I can 360 and ski backwards.  I started skiing when I was three and started to ski park last season.  Skiing is one of my favorite sports and I will hopefully ski all of my life.   

I love to travel to California and Hawaii.  I am going to California again this November.  I like California because I get to spend a lot of time with my family and go surfing.    

I like to explore Vancouver Island.  This summer I went camping at lots of different places like Gold River, Pachena Bay, and Cortes Island. 


Have a good day,
