Watch Me Turn 30, by Amy M.
ABOUT THIS SITE
I inherited this site from the lovely Holly P., whom you all know. I'm a photo/sports freak who needed a creative outlet. Thought it would be cool to record my thirtieth year, which will be action-packed!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I'm, Amy, I'm 29, and I call beautiful Brooklyn home. Brooklyn will be featured a lot, so get ready. As will my friends, family, photographers, famous athletes, Asia, and the Caribbean. Not in that order though.

DAY 204  |  September 2, 2005
I think I have hit a turning point in my surfing life. After some early nervousness and low confidence, I gained some focus and finally listened to some helpful pointers and stood up, times. Granted, I didn’t really stand comfortably on the board, but the victory of the day was I really understood how to catch the wave. And once I did, I was flying. Here are some keys to success:

-Paddle like my life depends on it and then paddle 3 or more strokes for good luck.

-Don’t get up until you feel you like the wave has got control.

It became more fun then scary by the end of the day. So far a good start to the long weekend…
