Surfing the Pacific Ocean

Trunking It


Most of the surfers are "trunking it" and not wearing their wetsuits because the water temperature has reached 70 degrees.  I found a few guys taking turns to catch some waves. How about you? Have you gone into the water this summer?

Manners on the Waves


Observing their kindness reminded me of a song I have taught my grandson, Pleasingly Patient. Little ones learn the art of patience with this cute counting song. Teach youngsters to sing the tune in a soothing voice as a way to help them manage their wait time. (sung to the tune of "Are You Sleeping?")

I am patient.
I am patient.
Watch me wait.
Watch me wait.
One, two, three, four, five,
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten.
I can wait.
I am great!

Gentle Paddle on Sluggish Water


This guy who is paddling out in his spring suit, well sometimes it takes awhile to reach the wave sets. It depends on how big the swell is and how the bottom is conformed.

 The Perfect Wave


Waiting for the swell and to see the wave coming, takes a lot of practice. Are you patient and can you wait?

Sundown


All in all, it was a great day surfing some pretty nice waves in the Pacific Ocean. Is the surf up where you are?
