Surfing is like nothing else, its sunburnt backs.

Its paddling back out for one more, 10 times.

Surfing is melting wax and burning sand. Its warm water, salt water and a dry mouth. Its calling a mate into the best wave of the morning.

Surfing is tubes and turns and flying down the line.

Its thumbs up and high fives.

Its three fins and one fin, two fins and none. Its road trips, boarding passes and rocking boats. Its a tropical reef and a track through the dunes. Surfing is the first view of the ocean every morning!

Surfing is who we are!

Surfing is everything.
