The Boys Surfing Lesson

Here are some pictures from the surfing lessons. They had to put shirts on to protect them from the sun and so the teacher could easily know who was in his surf class. It is also better than wearing sunscreen so that it doesn't get in the water and mess with the marine life. Glasses - just to make him look like Mr. Cool.
Here they were being instructed on how to lay on the surf board.
Heading to the beach. Cameron is with another co-workers daughter in the background. They are doing the buddy system, where they have 2 boards but they are each carrying part of the other. I guess that is how you are supposed to do it - but of course all the men wanted to carry them on their heads!

Here is Cameron up on his board - and about to wipe out!
And here is Eric making it look easy!
From the rest of the pics that I am not posting - it looks like got up on the boards multiple times. As much as they loved going out to surf - they didn't want to do it again - because they were so sore and worn out from paddling themselves back out into the waves. Now you know why surfers are so thin - it is a LOT of exercise to keep paddling out and getting up on your board.
Cameron decided after this surf lesson - that he is going to move to Hawaii and go to college - however, I disagree!!

Hahaha, of course he is, Mom!! =) After that SKI trip that my brother went with us on (Steamboat - where he learned to snow board) he had his sights set on the Denver area for a while. He and his buddies still go out there yearly and snow board. I guess once you're hooked, you're hooked. =) Great pictures.
