Successfully maneuvering a wave takes concentration, superior balance, and no fear to a new rank. The natural high of surfing is as good a feeling as making an 'A' on an exam [if not better].The white water was breaking behind me and I was forced to move beyond it. I paddled as hard as I could, but progressed nowhere. "Why," I pondered to myself, "Why am I so weak?" I slowly pushed to the furthest sandbar, where the waves were less trifling. Surfers: the tan, salt induced bodies of them all were in harmony with nature's sea of sodium. The hard-core wave riders were off in the distance waiting for the sets, as I rode 'over the falls' at the shallow cold sandbar.Becoming one with nature is the most rewarding feeling someone can experience. People have become so caught up in their daily routines, they don't allow themselves the good points in life. In the cool waters of the ocean are the people enjoying the high, the 'Salty High.'
