do you know the feeling of always wanting more? more hours of that beach party. more pages of that fabulous book. more days of summer. more waves per session. more of that skin…

this is way too personal now, but I don’t want to agonize over it at the moment. exactly one year ago my grandpa died. I do not consider myself religious but I’m sometimes “talking” to him and asking him why he cannot take better care of me from where he is now.
but I guess he took enough care of me. he left some money for me on this earth and I started thinking about what to do with it. then the idea of my surf trip rose and this must be the path he paved for me.
thank you for making this possible! and I’m looking forward to experiencing what you arranged for me on my adventurous journey from wave to wave…
I just watched “soul surfer” for the very first time and I have to admit that it’s not the best movie I’ve ever seen in my whole life, but it left me with a positive and optimistic feeling. so, if you’re somewhat down these days, give it a try. and let’s hope that it’s true: something good is gonna come out of everything that happens to us…
remember my beloved quote of jaimal yogis? here it is again:
“…I realized every surfer has to like paddling, at least a little. this was because extremely little of each surf session is spent actually standing up on your surfboard on a wave – maybe one percent – so if you’re looking to have a good time it’s essential to find a way to enjoy paddling, or at least good-naturedly bear it. and in that way, I thought, surfing is kind of a good metaphor for the rest of life.”
today, nothing special happened – okay, I booked our flight to morocco – but besides, it was just another day. pretty normal one. still, I didn’t have to paddle much today (in the last weeks I had to… really hard work…) and I’m sooo grateful! thanks a lot for today (whomever…)!
AND HEY: I really booked our flight to morocco! at the end of october! I’m sooo excited! because we couldn’t find a cheap airline at first and I already thought, we couldn’t go – but it worked! yippieh-ey-eh! :)
my shaper! check him out :)))
Surf Writers is in innovative new art show connecting beach life to urbanism.
Israels top graffiti artists joined together with Hani surfboards to create beautiful works of art from old and broken surfboard. The urban recycling of what was once wave riding machines makes us preticulary proud to be a part of the special project.
what we love to see is that people keep using the boards out of the water to enrich their life and keep sharing the stoke.
So if your around Israel hop by to riviera beach in Bat Yam to check it out.
The show is open until august 22nd
I added a new page to my blog with the title “what a surfergirl needs on the road” – it’s a list of useful things to take with you on your next surf trip! :)
I hope you enjoy it:
take care & hang loose
