I'm often asked how surfing feels. I step back. I think. I think, and I'm not sure, so I say things like this: Amazing. Surreal. Magical. I say it's a release, and that it fuels my being. I do it to feel free. I surf because nothing compares. Effortlessly gliding across the ocean– smooth, speed, calm. Surfing defies what your mind thinks is possible. I say all that, but I can't convey what I feel.
