I miss waking up at 6 in the morning to the sound of the waves.
I miss my friends in Liwa.
I miss paddling until my arms feel like noodles.
I miss my back and chest pains.
I miss the surfboard I’ve come to love despite my having to carry it all the way to and from the beach every single surf day.
I miss isaw afternoons.
I miss random hoop sessions.
I miss being in the company of people who make you laugh until your eyes are wet with tears.
I miss my happy place.
I miss surfing.
