Surf popped up for us here for a solid week of good waves. I took full advantage of it and surfed every day, sometimes twice a day. Surf tired was in full effect by Wednesday and by Friday I came down with a virus, which put on end to my wave obsession.
Mia also got in some great sessions. We went after school each day except Tuesday and Friday and she is also surf tired.
Her surfing has progressed nicely over the summer. She is making turns and really ripping up the waves.
She has also nailed the “duck dive” which is a huge thing for such a little girl.
Here you see her pushing under the waves:
And here you see her punching through to the other side. Good job Mia!
It really is a game changer. Now she can duck dive through the big shore break when the waves are pounding and make it to the outside. Huge step, and we owe it to her coach and lots of hard work on her part.
Here are some pics from last Wednesday of her surfing.
She is taking off and turning into the wave in what we call “backside”. It is a hard way to surf…sort of like writing with your left hand if you are right handed. I think she did a great job.
On her heels trying to cut back.
Not bad for a 10yo little girl from Texas.
