The whole Thanksgiving weekend was of course, awesome. However, one definite highlight for me was surfing! As a beginner to the sport, I didn't know exactly what to expect. Unfortunately, the conditions were not ideal, but under Ian's careful guidance, I progressed from being pulled off and crushed under the wave to catching it and almost standing up! Maybe next time, I'll be able to get up all the way. Then I'll feel like I'm on top of the world.
