Where I stayed
Western Beach Lodge
It's located on the brim of the Indian Ocean, so there's a beach and a surfing beach at that...as to why i headed here. I wanted to try my luck at surfing again. I just scoped oot the surfing and the beach the first afternoon. I was excited to enjoy a sunset on a beach again, with a few beers..company would have been nice but still enjoyed my own enough.
So got up the next morning rented a board from the hostel and headed oot, with a wetsuit of course cuz it's pretty cold. I got demolished, my body as well as my confidencne. Im not gonna blame myself entirely as the waves weren't easy (as a fellow surfer stated, that would make me a surfer, ok a surfer stated) as they weren't breaking too well and quite big, (no baby steps) and i think my board wasn't the greatest for me, it was old and tattered (kind of like how i felt)
I did have a very relaxing afternoon afterwards though, i have to say. A beer for my efforts and a couch in the sun at the hostel with a good book...yay! And then wandered back down to the beach for a more relaxing time, another sunset for one.
So Scarbourgh and surfing together didn't necesasrily work oot for me...i miss Noosa and surfing, it was much kinder to me. Scarbrough for its sunset and beach did work though...and relaxing always works for me.
