Gee, The New Year Sure Was Swell!

Words by Ru Hill

We got the biggest swell we’ve had in months this week to chime in the new year. I think last Thursday morning was the most enjoyable surf lesson I have ever done. Some of our guests were new to surfing and blew me away by getting bombs like Evan (below) for whom this was only day 10 on a surf board! Pete (above) already had a few years experience under his belt but I don’t think he often gets waves like this one back home in Scarborough (UK).

Once all the students got a few waves under their belt, new Surf Simply coach Martin (above) couldn’t resist paddling into this perfect right hander and even Gem (below) managed to tear herself away from answering emails and preparing delicious lunches to snag a few good ones.

We’d like to say a big thank you to all our guests this week for being such a thoroughly enjoyable bunch. There was Julia, Will, Evan, Pam, Di, Pete, Kit & Dan (above) and Emily, Shannon, Kristi, Kevin & Sharon (below). Apparently there’s already talk of a reunion trip later in the year, so I’m sure we’ll see all you guys again soon…
