This Sunday I tried surfing for the very first time, and it was amazing😍 The surf class was arranged by my Australian organisation SCCE and all the exchange students were welcome. It took place at the Ocean Grove Beach which is quite far from where I live. Luckily my exchange friend Tilde lives only 20min from that beach and her host family let me stay at their's.
The Friday before surfing I went to my friend Chantelle's End Of Year Party which was really fun and I also met her puppies. They were so frickin cute and I died a little... But I had to resurrect because otherwise I would've missed surfing.
On Saturday morning my host parents were awesome enough to drive me down to Tilde's. We drove to Sorrento and took the ferry over to Queens Cliff which spared us an hour of driving. The weather was perfect for a ferry ride. We stopped at a lighthouse close to Queens Cliff and it was really beautiful.
I got to Tilde's at about 3pm and then we went to a small beach close to her house. Later on we walked into the town center and had dinner. Afterwards we went to Woolies and bought some snacks and then headed back to her house. I meet her host family and they were super nice. Before bed we watched Spider Man and ate nachos,
The following day we woke up, had breekie and then her host mom drove us down to the beach. Tilde's host sister came along as well. We meet up with the other exchange students at the beach and some of them I hadn't seen since Sydney, so it was really nice hearing about their year this far.
We were around 50 people so they split us up into two groups. I was in the first one so I got a dry wetsuit #score We grabbed the surfboards and walked down to the beach. They divided us into even smaller groups, about 7 people in each.
Surfing wise I would say everybody did really good. I reckon almost everyone managed to stand up at least once. And that is so good because it was hard as.
After the surfing we went back to Tilde's. Her host family were having a barbecue so I stayed for that (I mean who turns down food?) I left there at around 6pm with a massive food baby. Now I only had 4h of public transport ahead of me. But to be honest I don't really mind it, because it is a great way to see more of Victoria. Everything from small country towns to the city.
I got back home at around 10:30pm. I was tired and lökig af (only my Malmö pepz will get this one) and covered in salt since I hadn't showered after the surfing #baddecision
