When I first started dating Dan 2 decades ago he was a surfer. That’s a pretty amazing accomplishment when you live in Columbus, Ohio but at least in his mind he was a surfer. There was a 3 month period when we were dating that he moved to Florida so he could surf more frequently. And for as long as we’ve been making this trek to the beach we have always had at least 1 if not 2 or 3 surfboards strapped to the top of our truck, car or van. Surfing in North Carolina is NOT easy. The break is too close to the beach so you just don’t have enough room to really ride a wave in. But that doesn’t stop everyone from trying.
This year is Thomas’ turn to catch the surfing bug. Dan traded in all of his old surf boards for one long board. While Thomas thinks it would be easier with a board more his size in reality it’s much easier to get up on the long board.

By gum, I think he’s got it! Now if he could only had somewhere to practice in Ohio!
