Body Boarding on My First Day

Splash!!!

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.
