I'ts OK, just looking for ballpark before we can get the wee man in the water :wink:

We just bought him his first pair of climbing shoes, to be phased in by 2014. (they were on sale!)

That was about dad's upper limit when he was going well, so he should exceed that by about age 10.

Would you be:
A)Pumping for the light
B)Stalling for the barrel
C)Tapping on the shoulder
D)Still on the beach

I'd like to think C, but I'm settling on a safe D :-(

That one looks untampered but prefer the other one, in a way it is the unrealness (is that a word) that I like.
I saw a film in the 70's maybe that had bodysurfing under the wave with the guy explaining how it was done, something I hadn't even considered before.

What you could do is not take a board, and get some fins? :lol:
