Today started off with a normal breakfast and the usual cleanup. But today was going to end up as no ordinary day. After cleanup, we were accompanied by a man named Sufjan. This was Argo’s first time with Sufjan, so I think we were all a little skeptical about how he would treat us. He led us to an old beat-up bus that we all piled into and made way for the beach that we were all meant to surf. The surf was small but perfect for beginners. Before the surf guides let us into the water, they gave us a vigorous workout to get our blood flowing and get us stretched and ready to surf. After they released us into the sea, we surfed for hours. There were about twenty boards but twenty-seven of us, so some people were playing great games of ultimate Frisbee and football as well. Sufjan even joined in on one of our football games and showed his fun, playful side. He even gave our shipmate John a little tackle. We were served a nice lunch that has become popularly known as tagine and had a great fruit basket for lunch dessert. Afterward, the surfing went on as the waves seemed to grow, eventually dying down later in the evening. Everyone started to settle down as we all had an adventure-packed day. The men that let us use the boards were good people, as well as Sufjan and the people that fed us. This day was over as we all rode the bus home, with some of us considering surfing as a new hobby.
