When you think of Australia, what comes to your mind? Besides kangaroos and BBQs, it’s probably surfing and the beach.

Visualize a beach seven miles long, nothing but the tan sand, the blue waves, and the bright Australian sun captures your sight. You have a sun-faded green surf board in your hand for the first time and you are about to try to catch your first wave. Your wettie (that’s Aussie for wetsuit) is zipped up tight; nothing but your bare feet and smiling face are exposed to the blazing sun. As you make your way towards the waves, you brace yourself before you decide to join the refreshing ocean. The waves welcome you and any slight bit of discomfort you might feel fades with the wonders of the water.

It is invigorating, and it makes you feel ALIVE.

Fresh from a lesson on the shore with the coolest instructors, you put your new knowledge to the test. After a couple of tries and some assistance from the pros, you are surprised you are already standing up. By the end of the week, you will not be able to believe how far you have come.

Being in Australia for the first time, I was feeling overwhelmed with the endless new opportunities now available to me. Life is all about pushing yourself out of your comfort zone, facing challenges so that you can change and learn new skills and make memories. One of my favourite quotes is, “Take chances when you are young so that you can tell stories when your old.” You do not want to be one of those people when they are 80 years old saying, “I wish I had done something like that.” Now is the time to make your life Unforgettable.

If you never try, you will never know how much you are really capable of. 

Going to Surf Camp Australia was an exhilarating new experience and kicked off my journey in the best way: New Moves, New Mates, and New Memories.image004
