Luke,You're right about not taking the surf for granted. I'm an architect in Chicago now. It's been over thirty years since I was a kid paddling out for a wave in Cocoa Beach. Man I miss the water drops that would jump off the lip onto my face from a crisp curl on a springtime wave. I'm looking at retirement and goin back to my roots. Gotta get back in shape though. Thanks for the reminder of what I took for granted back then.
