The sun came up on a beautiful Thursday morning, and as I took my morning walk with my puppies I could feel the warmth from the sun, and I knew that it was going to be a fantastic day for the beach. With the cooler packed full of water and containers of pre-portioned healthy meals I was ready for the day. We went out to the Barbers Point White Plains Beach in Kapolei where they had a place we could rent surfboards. Within our group of friends there were both experienced and new surfers and there was a variety of boards for us to try. Being new to surfing I was very open to hearing any sort of advice and tips I could get from people who had grown up surfing. They told me that for my first time it was best to get a big board. The board was 10 feet long and super buoyant.
Some intense board rash on my legs, a coral cut on my foot and some new tan lines later it was time to call it a day. I didn’t realize how much of an amazing workout it was until I was carrying my board back up the beach. I was so busy having a blast that I didn’t even think about the calories I had blasted through during my adventure. Since we will be closing on our house soon and living near that beach I can definitely see this being a new morning routine. Getting some exercise, a tan and having fun each morning sounds like a great perk to living in such an amazing paradise!
Go out and try something NEW and have an amazing weekend!
