Today was a day of extremes.  We arrived at Riyuewan at high tide with strong lines of whitewater rolling onto the beach, which made the lessons challenging and gave the students an incredible workout.  We ended the day at low tide with mellow little waves rolling in, which I’m sure the students appreciated since they were already tired from the morning session.  Everyone did quite well especially considering how much energy we all spent in the ocean today.

Today’s swell was about 2 to 2.5 meters with waist to head high waves in the morning, dropping to knee to waist high waves by the late afternoon.  The wind was blowing onshore for the entire day, making for choppy conditions.

今天早晨比起下午的浪完全不一样。我们在涨潮的时候开始冲浪教课。那个时候海浪是非常强劲,所以学生都锻炼得很利害!我们结束的时候退潮了浪已经小了很多。对学生看来比早晨的教课放松很多!今天大家都冲得很开心而且提高了他们的冲浪能力。

早晨的浪是腰高到匈高的,但是一直越来越小,到了下午的时候差不多膝高到腰高。今天整天都有陆上风所以条件有一点乱。

 

These guys were ready for a second and third session after an intense morning.  虽然早上的教课很辛苦但是他们再冲了三次。

 

Fortunately the afternoon’s waves were much easier to paddle through.  好在下午的浪没有早上的那么大。
