Bodysurfing Gillis Beach with Mike Stewart and Kalani Lattanzi. #IBSD

Updated: May 4


International Bodysurfing Day

1 May was a success.

And is set in stone.



It's a day to celebrate and reflect.


There was a need,

Let's continue to fill that need

with a vision of Bodysurf in the Olympics.


(The social media posts for

International Bodysurfing Day

have begun to propagate on Google Search.)

Success and Attitude.


When I asked Kalani Lattanzi for an interview he said,


"Sure, anything for bodysurfing."


And when I asked John Shearer and Gillis Beach Bodysurfing Association

to support International Bodysurfing Day

he sent back a formal letter

of endorsement (tout suite).


And when I asked Mike Stewart

to help fill the need for International Bodysurfing Day he wrote back:


"What can I do?"


I read the message and thought:

“That's the (insert expletive) attitude!”


Success and Attitude

are intimately related,

but how does Bodysurfing

fit into that equation?


Because up and down the line

of folk who bodysurf,

I only met with that same attitude.


It’s not a zero sum endeavor...


Grease Theme On Leaders, on Bodysurfers:


“They take conventions

and they throw away

conventionality

belongs to yesterday.

There is a chance

that we can make it so far

we got to believe right now

that we can be who we are...”


Be who you are.


Bodysurf: It’s the word.

It’s the word, it’s the word.


It’s groove.

It’s got feeling.
















More to come...


Gracias a la vida.
