I found myself tearing up early on Thursday morning as I stood in thigh-deep ocean, side-by-side with Currumbin Rock and mermaid surf student Jordy.

As we waited for a lull in between solid 3 foot sets so we could paddle out, we watched as the back edge of a 2-day rain front passed over us and the sun emerged to light up the surf as the waves rounded the point…luminescent green lips with westerly spray shearing seaward, like wild horses.

The years come and go. Children grow, hearts break, happiness rises, dictators fall.

I am still in love with this world.
