A few weeks ago, Zack and I rented a car on a random Saturday and went surfing in Torquay. The nice part about our trip was that we didn't rush or cram in the surf time. Often when we go surfing, we aim to get up very early in the morning in order to get down to the ocean while the waves are at their best, we practice our surfing nonstop for a couple of hours, and we immediately head back to Melbourne because it's either cold or rainy at the beach.
This Saturday was different. We slept in, went out for brunch, then headed down to the beach and surfed at a leisurely pace. We'd hit the waves for awhile, come out and enjoy the sunshine, then go back in, then come out and read a book, etc. It was great! The surfing conditions weren't the greatest, but we didn't care. It was nice just to be in the semi-warm water and enjoying the summer weather. We plan on doing it again soon!
