After three months without paddling out, i’m finally back in the water. When Luna was about 3 weeks old I started taking her on beach walks with the dogs in the mornings. I wrapped her up in a sling, covered her head with a little hat and we’d walk down to the ocean with the dogs and look at the waves. It seemed impossible to leave her on the beach and out of my arms for any length of time, but day by day I got more and more eager to catch a wave.
Cory Lopez used to be one of my favorite surfers. After finding this video of him surfing with his daughter, he might have moved back to the top of my list of favorites. I can’t wait to surf like this with our little girl!
