It took me 27 years of age and moving to the Middles East to embark on
the adventurous journey that is the sport of surfing. Warmly welcome
by the legendary Topsea community, I have become a somewhat permanent
fixture at the place. Standing out as the only adult in the weekly
kids classes (my favorite activity I do all week) and joining the
Topsea team (which has challenged every inch of my body and pushed me
to my physical limit).
As I aspire surf all over the world, so far visitng places such as
Bali and Morocco, I feel that no other place has the warmth, good vibe
and fun loving nature of the Topsea surf centre. The warm water,
awesome instructors and expert experience of Orian (the son of the
Topsea, the first Israeli surfer), makes this the perfect place for to
learn how to surf.
Surfing has changed my life. It has been the most rewarding and
challenging pursuit I have yet to take on. There are good days and bad
days, becoming more dynamic and fun the more I do it. Developing a
love for the sea and all the good people I have shared sessions with
along the way.
I want to use this space to share my love of surfing in this crazy
country. The trials and tribulations of a Californian learning to surf
in Israel.
To all my surfing friends out there – especially the English speaking
ones – who’ve I shared many great sessions with as we’ve tried to lean
together – I invite you to please reply and share of your stories as
On that note, I am boarding a plane to Sri Lanka for another epic
surfing adventure – hope the swell picks up in IL! See ya in the water
when I’m back Smiley
