Yesterday, a surf instructor offered to give Spencer a quick lesson on the beach front. Spencer quickly mastered standing on a surfboard on dry land and had tried standing on a still surfboard in the water. The instructor declared that Spencer was ready for the real thing, so we arranged to go to surfing school today.
Spencer was a little nervous on the way there, but he jumped on his board and paddled out into the surf. We couldn’t believe how far out he went. It made it pretty difficult to track his progress, but we could occiasonally make out his form riding a wave or wiping out.
