If you have the opportunity to make it to a beach, go surfing. Do not let anyone or any environmental obstacle get in your way.

Put on a hazmat suit and wax up. The good lord did not give us trees to make surfboards (and other composites) for us to just stand on the beach and stare off into the great beyond.

Go surfing.

Yes, you will most likely drink 23 of the the great blue sea but it will be worth it. Will you get sick? Probably but that’s why we have doctors. If anything, what you will ingest will most likely make you immune to whatever has been dumped into the ocean.

(*Note - The author is not a medical professional and you should not take this advice without consulting with a medical professional)

It will all be worth it once you finally get up on your 37th try and stand on that board for 0.0034875th of a second.

Go surfing.

Also, you get stuck with my Scott Frost Day News for one more day this week.

Thanks Nate.
