Surfing, Hawaii-Style

On our last full day in Maui, Conservative Hubby only had one goal: To surf.

Fortunately, that was easy to do just down the beach from our hotel. So that morning he started out with a refresher lesson on the land.

Then, once he had the basics down again, it was time to hit the waves.

I don't know whether it was the fact that it was his second time out or that the waves were easier to surf, but for whatever reason Conservative Hubby did considerably better this time than he did on his first surfing outing in California.

He was able to get up on his board quickly and stay on it much longer than he did last time he surfed.

In fact, he looked like he knew what he was doing. (Especially compared to the two people he took a lesson with who were ... um ... struggling a bit to say the least.)

It was fun to sit and watch Conservative Hubby on the beach, but I have to admit after seeing him surf this time I even got a bit of an itch to try it myself.

So maybe next time I'll be out there too. We'll just have to see.

(Oh, one downfall to Maui surfing: Coral. This spill resulted in some massive bruises. But it looked good!)
