|Falling off. Credit: Wikipedia.|
I looked at the sun shining up above me and it shone so brightly in my eyes that I couldn’t see where I was going. Then I fell off my surfboard like a slippery fish. I was frightened when I hit the water. Salt water stung my eyes. But I started kicking and after a few seconds I reached the surface.
Later on, I felt brave and went surfing on the humongous waves. I waited for a green faced wave to come, wave after wave I rode. I saw the wind make a sand storm and the sunbathers were running for cover. Then, finally the perfect wave came, I had to do to three more paddles to join the wave. I got on to the wave and I rode towards the beach but suddenly I fell off again and this time I thought my lungs would explode. Once again, I kicked back to the surface. Then I heard the whistle blow.
They told us how good we were and we came in. I loved how far I was able to go out to sea.
