Last week I got a call asking if they could
borrow boards. Seems that their teacher
has stopped being so available, either by
accident or design. This has forced them to
take matters into their own hands. They've had
to become more proactive and take action to
get what they want. Enough of waiting for the
teacher. Enough watching fun surf without a board.
They needed to surf and I have boards.
Simple as that!
What a great life lesson. Know what you want and don't
wait around for others to do it for you. What's the worst
thing that can happen? You know, you might just get what
you want. The surf girls did. One of my old boards sits in
one of their vans and the other is stored in a very accessible
place. They don't even have to ask anymore.
Oh yes, they call the shaper that they've ordered boards
from weekly hounding him about when their new boards
will be ready. Gotta love it!
