El Porto Beach - Mel Surfing!

Mel rocking her 7'4'' fun board and her new wetsuit
Yesterday Melis and I went to a surf-shop to buy her a wetsuit.  Yup, that's right, Mel is going to start surfing! Yahoo!  While we were there we also found a 7'4'' fun-board that was being sold on consignment.  Since the price was right, we decided to get it.  I'm not going to lie, I'm excited to use the fun-board as well:-)
Today Melis and I went to El Porto in Manhattan Beach to test out her new gear.  The waves were pretty small and just right for learning.  Melis did a great job on the single fin fun-board.  She got up and looked very comfortable wearing her new 4/3 wetsuit.  When learning how to surf it's important to get out as much as you can.  So I hope to take Mel out a few times next weekend.  Before I know it she'll be ripping Sunset and Surfrider on her way back from work at Pepperdine.  Good times.

Fantastic!! Melissa looks like a seasoned (and very happy!) surfer. Can't wait to see future videos of her up on the board rippin' it :-)
