School's out..surf's up.....!!

Yup, the weather's heating up, it's the school hols, and in Australia if you live along the coast that usually means 'beach, surf and sun'. It's a flourishing time for business in the many surf shops in and around the City.  Star Surf Shop at Sorrento Quay were displaying these colourful junior surf boards designed to entice young surfers into the water! With regular shark sightings off our coast it would take more than a snazzy board to get me further than 'knee deep' in the water, I love living by the coast but prefer to enjoy it from the safety of some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.....!! p.s. thanks so much for all the birthday wishes yesterday.....

  2. I'm with you! I did a minor amount of surfing as a kid in Los Angeles...no sharks around that I ever heard about. But I wouldn't surf in Florida, either, for fear of shark attacks.

  12. Colours are vibrant and certainly tempting, but I agree with you re. safety. Sharks and sleek and fast. Sun bathing seems to be the best option.

  17. So colorful!

    I've never surfed before. But I bet its a great water spot. I can't wait to try para-sailing though :)

  18. Happy belated birthday! I like all of those brightly colored boards. I grew up just blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and my high school was right across the street from the beach. In fact, my math teacher also owned a surf shop. I always just watched the action from the beach though!
