Surfing His First Wave

*Edited to add: This morning I woke up to the news of the tsunami and earthquake.  My family is thinking of families in the affected areas.*

Getting on a surfboard and surfing has been on my husband’s bucket list for as long as I have known him.  Even though we live on the Gulf Coast, he had only been on a surfboard once or twice.  Surfing a wave on the North Shore definitely ranks up there in his top ten awesome activities!  He took a lesson from the Hans Hedemann Surf School at Turtle Bay Resort in the North Shore.  A review of his experience will be posted next week but here are a few pictures from that first caught wave!

    Hilarious–we’re staying at Turtle Bay in April, and I’m signed up for a surf lesson at that very school! Can’t wait. Bet there are some crazy waves out off Oahu today…

      Kristin – You will enjoy it so much! I will find out my husband’s instructor’s name and I will let you know! He was an awesome instructor! Turtle Bay is absolutely beautiful. I couldn’t help but be charmed by the place even though it is a gigantic resort.

    Looking good, Mr. Two Kids and a Map! I have a hilarious series of photos from when my husband attempted to learn to windsurf on our honeymoon. John Kerry, he is not. I’ll have to dig them up and post them sometime.

    Wow! Tell your husband congrats! I can’t imagine ever being able to do that…I’m way too clumsy.
