Well, I have officially arrived back home from a very, very much needed vacation. In Melbourne, Florida, I found that 8+ foot waves can not be successfully ridden with a boogie board… REALLY can not be ridden. I got flipped upside-down, slammed head first into the sea floor, and cartwheeled to the shore. There were 4 – 10 foot waves the entire trip — not bad for the Atlantic Ocean. It is amazing how much I can miss in a week, I have not been touched any form of technology since I left.
