I went surfing for the first time today, if you would call it that. Heres the deal, my buddy had just won a brand new surfboard and brought it home. Sadly, well not really, but we live in Montana, where the biggest waves are when fat people jump in lakes. Well my buddy, figured how we could still surf. We hooked up a rope to the back of my buds boat, and had about 8 feet of rope. We then were pulled behind his boat and he was going really slow, so then we pulled outselves up into the surfing posistion and started riding. Once we were comfortable we just found the "sweet" part of the wave and threw the rope back in the rope and surfed freely. Im pretty sure he got this from a video he saw.
I know this isnt epic or anything but for a kid whosed been to the beach once, and has always wanted to surf, twas like heaven for me.
