A Duck Dive

Sometimes duckdiving can be as enjoyable and entrancing as actually riding a wave, especially when it's clear enough to open your eyes and warm enough to shed your wetsuit.
     I plan to do a tutorial on duckdiving eventually. I didn't want to do so with this sequence of pictures because they are of a rather odd/sideways duckdive I did the other day on my fish.
     You may have figured this out from the pictures (or know already), but a duckdive is a maneuver shortboard surfers use to push themselves and their boards under the waves as they paddle from the inside to the outside of the lineup.

  4. OMG I am so scared of the ocean! I can't swim in deep waters it just makes me crazy and now seeing this pictures make me want to give it a try. I live on the beach too but certainly the bahamas are no place for surfing
