A couple of rad little, summer lake surf days have been the perfect reminder of why I love to surf so much!
I love the people I surf with. I love watching as they catch a really good wave, or even a mediocre wave, and make it a nice ride. I love the feeling of popping up and just cruising on a wave. I love the awe that people watching from the beach are in when they realize that there are people surfing on the lake. I love watching people who are just learning the ropes, even though it's not like I know too much more, who keep trying and are determined to catch a ride. I love watching them bail and the get back out and try again.
I love that surfing makes me feel strong, confident, determined, and like a bad ass lady!
So thanks surfing. Thanks Lake Michigan. Thanks wave days. You make me into one super happy Mads.
