Wassup bro? thanks for takin' it so well. sorry I was kinda in a bad mood when I wrote that first post. :roll: but yeah find a "mentor" i guess you could say. I owe all my surfing ability to my mentor. He was wonderful. He was 46 and still an avid surfer(and still is). He was my 11th grade Sunday school teacher. We used to go surfing every sunday morning before church. We would meet at the beach at 6 am and surf for a couple hours, then go home, shower, get dressed, and go to Sunday School at 9:30 am. I still do that and occasionally he joins me. So If you could find someone you already kind of know or a good friend of your's could introduce you to or something like that. If you cant find anyone that way, then I guess It couldn't hurt to ask a surfer out in the water,just try someone older, they may have more patience or be friendlier than a grom. Oh and if you think you are in their way or feel like you may be taking their surfing time, you could always wait till they leave the water for the day. Then approach them on the beach and ask them a question(or questions). Just try to look for them next time you go out, and the next time,and try to build a friendship with the person.
Hey you can always ask me Questions too! :D feel free to ask. I'd be glad to help you. I may not be able to tell you as much as the experienced old guys, but hey I'll do what I can!
Oh by the way, my name is Josh, I'm 18, and I live in Jacksonville, Florida USA. What's your a/s/l? Peace out Bro![/b]
