Let’s Go Surfing!

Who said surfing was easy? haha We’ll… it’s not! Australia is known for surfing, so naturally I signed up for a 1-hour class in Bondi Beach. I couldn’t go back home thinking I didn’t surf or at least tried to surf.

1) Bondi Beach is the perfect beach to learn how to surf

The waves in Bondi Beach are very calm, but they give you the perfect push beginners need.

10) But hey, at least I tried!

This was the longest hour of my life. I wish I had more time to “practice” haha

PS: I was sore for an entire week.
