Beginning Surfer's Wipeout

Yesterday I showed a surfer who was very good.  Today's photo with a little point-and-shoot camera is not very good, but I am posting it anyway because it shows the opposite extreme of surfing experience.

On the left of this photo are the arms and legs of a surfer who has just fallen off his surfboard, which is visible just in front of the tiny wave.

Surfing is probably like riding a bicycle.  It is likely harder to keep one's balance while barely moving than it is when moving more quickly.

Every surfer has to start sometime, so I am not criticizing the beginner in this photo.   He is to be congratulated for trying and for beginning a fun and thrilling sport.

We have new photos of Ireland posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.  We are showing photos of Galway and the Cliffs of Moher.

That would be me! If younger, yesteday's photo would document my efforts!

That is surely what would happen to me if I tried this.

How did you get that photo of me? It was so embarrassing.

I think it takes ages to get that balance while manoeuvring the waves :)
