He gave us the initial training for about an hour where he taught us in the sand how to stand on the board once the tide comes. After this it was time for real action.
The primary step was to wait for the correct wave, it should be high enough for you to have enough time to stand on the board and reach the shore.
Next step is to repeat the drill again and again as every time you slip from the board. It require immense strength to push up against the gravity while floating on the water.
After several failures came a successful ride. I was riding on the wave, feeling like Aquaman.
That day I just didn't learn surfing, I learnt the importance of practice, determination, patience and discipline.
From that moment till now, whenever I feel like the tide of life is pushing me away. Although I have done, rafting, swimming and parasailing but I never felt so controlled and free as I did during surfing.
I learnt a sport, an art and most importantly a life lesson.
