An instructor that was a few yards away with a group of three yelled out, “Party wave! Everyone gets up!” Watching as the wave got closer I knew that this time I was ready for it. As the wave began to swell my instructor pushed the back of my board into it. Having been told enough times before this wave when to try and stand I knew the feeling I was looking for now, and I found it. Jumping up I found my feet. For a few moments I stood on that board and knew I had done it. I had surfed for the first time!
