Everybody has a thing. Mine is surfing. I’ve been doing it forever. Mostly I surf in Virginia Beach, but I’ve traveled all over the globe. I’m good at it. I’ve earned a living from it, in one way or another, for 25 years. Near the end of 2013, I wondered what life would be like if I didn’t surf. So I quit. It’s as simple as that. I haven’t ridden a wave this year, and I don’t plan to. I’m enjoying my new perspective as a landlubber, but I can’t wait to get back in the water. In the meantime, I’m documenting the journey, reflecting on some of my past experiences, and going off about whatever’s on my mind. It’s sure to be a wild ride, and I’m honored you’ve chosen to take it with me.
