Alex's approach to surfing was somewhat interesting as it didn't seem to involve standing up on the board Also the instructor had a novel approach, which was to bob around and occasionally wave to his students. The other 2 students also didn't seem to be able to get up either.
At this point, I was rapidly going off the idea of surfing, especially when I met my instructor & he asked if I had tried any other sports involving balance.....skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding....or anything involving falling over.....er no! In fact I said, "I'm scared of falling over" He must have thought, "we've got a right one here!
So we've ended up staying another nite in Mal Pais....moved to another hotel, next to the surf shop and best surf, bought some surf shorts and hired the board for 24 hrs to catch some more waves (or at least I did!).
Mal Pais is a pretty spot & has been great for surfing & great weather, but not much else to do, so we're moving on to Montezuma in a few hrs.
