(Day 1: First Moments in the Island)
(Day 2: Island Hopping (Guyam Island, Daku Island, and Naked Island))
Our surfing lessons were only going to last for 2 hours, so we scheduled it in the afternoon. In the morning, we were basically like bums. Having nothing to do after breakfast (which I helped prepare, by the way), I went back to sleep. I only woke up in time for lunch. Haha what a pig.
Cocoy gave us some preliminary lessons on surfing — he taught us how to position ourselves on the surfboard, stand up, do the stance, and balance on the board (but we weren’t on a board yet, so we just had to imagine). It was a little daunting especially when you think you’re too heavy to lift your body up or that you have a weak core.
3pm came, and we were on our way to Cloud 9 (the surfing area in General Luna). We each had an instructor and we had the ‘official’ lessons there. It’s basically the same as what Cocoy taught us, but we were told we could stand up slowly so that lifting our bodies up wouldn’t be too hard (Cocoy was just really quick!).
