Hi Sonja. Do you ski? It's similar to skiing, in that, the less scarred you are, the better it goes.
Thanks for your comment1

Awesome wave action! Great capture =) Surfing is indeed a lot of fun....

No, I was forced to try once, but I never really skied i my life. It was fortunately the kind of school event for social purpose, not a course with marks, as I spent the whole week mostly bruising my bum, as the laughing stick of the whole 8th grade. LOL

Hi Sonja. The deal with skiing and surfing is that fear makes one sit back. In order to properly control the skiis, the weight must usually be centered over the feet. The more fear you have the worse you do. Physics...

The biggest difference is that in surfing, fear can get you killed.... The ocean is very unforgiving.

That's a good point, Fizgig. Fear is useful , however, when a novice sees over the head waves, and decides to just watch.
We sometimes see a novice who has arrived by mistake, on a Black Diamond run, though. Steep ski runs can be deadly, as well. As kids, the thrill was supreme, and we used to say stuff like, "Well, you've got to die of something!"
Us old ones are lucky to still be here. I give thanks every day!
