1. I assess the conditions with a different eye.
2. I don't mind if conditions are big, lumpy and onshore.
3. I can be disappointed if conditions are such that I have to ride my longboard rather than a mat.
4. I now own 5 extra wave craft.
5. I also now own a second, huge, pair of fins.
6. I store my body board under the house.
7. I have slimmed down a little in the body but now have massive legs.
8. I get wet and am stoked far more often than I used to be.
9. I have made lots of great new friends all around the world.
10. I am more contented and am starting to stop wearing any footwear at all?
What are your 10?
