I am always amazed at how the best things happen when you least expect them. As I was laying on the beach in Alanya, on the southern coast of Turkey, with the salty Mediterranean breeze soothing my soul, who would have thought that in two days I would be flying up in the air, having a once-in-a-lifetime experience I would never forget?
Lately, it seems as though finding remote waves has become even more exciting than riding them. It’s human nature to grow tired of the same routine, and even surfing can lose its charm when you’re hitting the same old waves time and again. When monotony kicks in, it’s time for a change of scenery!
In a perfect world, surfing wouldn’t pose any dangers at all, save for the odd shark that’s minding its own business in its natural environment. But unfortunately, we’re not living in a perfect world and our oceans aren’t as clean and as disease free as we would want them to be.
