A couple of weeks ago my friend left me her surfboard because she had to go back to the USA. I was really excited and everyone told me that this would be the perfect board to learn on since I have never surfed before. I've been in Byron Bay for a couple of months and watched the surfers over here so many times. It looked like heaps of fun and really easy. I heard from people who know way more about surfing than me that there are really good surfing beaches in Byron Bay. So I was very enthusiastic to take my board out and to finally go surfing.
