Surfing in Hawaii

While my girls were out racing on the beach, I was spending some of my time admiring the crazy people challenging the surf in Hawaii. There's a wide range of people in Hawaii willing to launch themselves into the ocean on a small sliver of wood, but in general I categorized the surfers into four main classes.

There's the beginners, who are pretty much content to just paddle around on their surfboard and look at the pretty scenery:

There's those who are actually attempting to learn how to surf and can stand up on their board:

The more advanced surfers start adding to their bag of tricks by bringing people (or animals) along with them:

Then there's the true expert surfers. Those who have mastered their craft, and now have to think outside the box to find new ways to keep the thrills alive:

Really though, once you don't even need water to surf, you've taken things about as far as you can go.

This post is a part of Photo Friday at Delicious Baby and Friday Daydreamin at R We There Yet Mom. If you didn't get here from one of those sites, you should really go check them out. There's people there who are still using water to surf in. Don't worry, they'll get to my day.
