I Almost Ran This Guy Over

     I almost ran this guy over. His feet, at least. Are you amused or horrified? I kinda laughed when I saw the pictures, but I could because I knew he was fine and it was just a close call. Honestly, I think most guys see a girl surfer out in the lineup and don't expect much. I'm just teaching them to hustle a little more when I'm coming, ya know? 

Do you ever feel like you need to prove yourself?

  3. Yes! Growing up in Texas guys would actually let me have the wave, even if I wasn't at the peak (southern chivalry, I guess?). Then when I moved to Hawaii, guys would see a bikini and automatically drop in. It eventually stopped at my regular breaks, but so annoying!!!

  4. yes, all the time! I work in a field of mostly men. The last meeting I went to there were 22 men and me. So yes I sometimes do feel the need to prove the reason I'm sitting in the room is justified!

  5. Fun photos! I've been surfing a few times when I was younger, I'd love to eventually get back out there!

  8. Were you trying to prove yourself, or he just happen to be there?? Hehe. I am always proving myself, especially behind the wheel. Yea, I drive a Prius, my acceleration sucks, but I can weave in and out of traffic with the best of them. Ha! (hehe, I laughed at myself for writing that)

  9. Lol... totally know the feeling. In the surf and in the snow. But - just quietly - I do get a kick out of the surprise on their faces when they realise I mean business.. ;)

  10. Haha, this is great. Not that I want you to run him over, LOL, but yes, I totally get what you're saying, about how maybe in the past men (or even women) have probably underestimated your surfing ability because you have boobs. Come on people. :) I see this happen in even non-physical non-sports environments, like where I work in graphic design sitting at a computer. I have felt the energy of "I'm a guy, we're just better", and I'm not hating on men, not at all... but this happened to be one particular human who happened to be a guy who was giving off this vibe. Of course I thought, "really? Your design doesn't say 'better' dude". Thankfully there are so many men & women who don't think this way, see the person for the person, man or woman. We are definitely evolving as humans, but yes you'll get the occasional macho/machista – as they say in Spanish. It happens :/ But it's just about keeping being awesome and undeniably good!

  11. Oh no! Yikes! I am always so amazed by your surfing. It goes against every bone in my body (big waves terrify me!). So did he say anything to you when it happened? I would've screamed, haha! Stopping by from SITS.
