People ask me "why surfing?"

I was watching astro one evening...nothing better to do...saw surfing competition (ASF) on astro sports.

I was about to turn it off and go online in my room, then the waves and the man riding in the "tube of wave", one hand touching the ocean , the other balancing himself with the surfboad. It had my attention...

Thats how it all started...i further went online google all about surfing knowledge, schools, waves , basic knowledge etc...even hooked up with ex colleague cliffton sum, now an advance surfer travelling weekly to cherating during monsoon season. I am still trying to break my weekend schedule to follow him.

And sometime people ask again, "why surfing ?". Then i saw this quote from as i was googling for surfing school. Their prices are quite reasonable.
