CJ Hobgood: “Everyone needs a little something different. Sometimes it takes something as extreme as moving away from the beach, or coming off an injury and having surfing taken away from you for you to realize how much you love it. Other easier ways are things like trying out a different shaper/board/fin setup, go shorter or longer—sometimes even a new wetsuit or baggies help. If all else fails, go somewhere you’ve never been.” Photo: Joli
Conner Coffin: “There are times when I feel I’m in a bit of a slump, or am having a few shockers in a row, but I feel like that happens if you are trying too hard. In that case, I try to cruise on some waves and just feel my rails in the water—just going fast and getting a good feeling back. When I’m relaxed and loose is when I feel like I do my best surfing.” Photo: Masters
Unschooling is like surfing - you look for waves, you wait for waves and then you catch them - you surf them. Just caught the wave of reading about South America in Spanish. I like the thought of 'unschooling'.
