What does bodysurfing mean to you?
For me, Bodysurfing is one of the most pure freeing feelings I've experienced. It can be chaotic and scary but in between all this mayhem some of the most blissful moments can be found. A meditation with the sea and a communion with the natural world.
Words of advice?
Smile! Have fun and be careful in shallow water, the risk of getting slammed into sandbars is real!
