Making Waves

Watch the surfers

ride the waves

flow with momentum

glide along sea

skilfully with dexterity

Art of surfing

Challenge outweighs risk?

  1. Yes, it’s risky, but I bet the surfers like the adrenaline rush πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Christy πŸ™‚ If there is no risk, would there be any challenge? Yes, this sport is risky and as I see it many surfers go in for the thrill and challenge, sometimes defying nature… but it’s a choice they have to make! Appreciate your interesting comment πŸ™‚


  2. any challenge involves at least one risk and vice-versa… πŸ™‚ but we have to assume the risk(s) we take as it’s our choice and our decision… we say in French: il ne faut pas tenter le diable! = do not tempt (devil)fate! πŸ™‚


  3. I love the waving perspective here! πŸ™‚ Great poem .
    Happy sunday ahead, dear Iris! Aquileana πŸ˜€


  4. They thrive on the challenge!


    • Yes, they have shown a great spirit of adventure and are really motivated to win! As Christy says there is the adrenaline flow… πŸ˜‰ The drive to show they are the best, you know what I mean! Appreciate your thoughts on this, Gallivanta. πŸ™‚

  5. Such a lovely picture of the carefree joy of summer. Its good to read your poetry again, iris.


    • Thank you, Mary, you are most welcome. πŸ™‚ Hope your summer weather has been pleasant. I enjoyed the milder weather in Brisbane after having lived in Melbourne. The poem is one inspired by a trip to Bondi Beach and watching the thrill seekers displaying their skills on the surfboards. Appreciate your time here! Happy Australia Day and best wishes.


  6. It’s a bit cold for surfing in the North so I only see it if we go to Cornwall, so tempting all those big waves. It looks easier than it is, I had a go lets just say its a good thing I’m a good swimmer.


Appreciate your thoughts.
