SURF SUR­PRISE

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - CONTENTS -

In 1965 I went to San Se­bas­tian on Spain’s north coast (Basque in the Glory 4/9/10), a charm­ing and wel­com­ing town with great food and a nice beach with waves for me to body­surf. My first at­tempt to take a wave was, how­ever, rudely in­ter­rupted by the ar­rival of a boat full of life­savers sent out to save my life. I man­aged to es­cape their clutches by rid­ing in to shore on a timely 2m wave, leav­ing them some­what be­wil­dered as to the na­ture of this novel sport.
