To Other Shoutykids: Learning to Surf

August 21, 2014

Hey other shoutykids – Guess what my dad told me this morning? He said it was time I learnt how to SURF. I said, why? The water’s FREEZING, my bedroom is warm, and I’m happy blasting zombies. He said, you can’t get fit blasting zombies. And if you want to hang out with Jessica, you’d better learn how to surf.

So we go down to Polzeath and take this class with a bunch of other kids, including Ed Bigstock, who was hilarious cos he wanted to show off what a fearless maniac he was. So when we get in the water, he ignores the teacher’s warning about NOT going out of your depth and he paddles straight through the break to try and catch a BIG WAVE , but instead he gets caught in this RIP, which like takes him off to France or wherever. So anyway then the lifeguard has to launch a boat to go grab him, which was pretty funny. But surfing is cool and I’m going to ask my dad to take me in again, which is kind of exactly what he wanted. But I’ll let you know how it goes.
