Are Surfing Skills Genetic?
Turns out no, unless my dad was really, really bad. And considering I keep finding these pictures of him in Southern California with long blond hair, I assume not.
I, on the other hand, am a dark, dark, brown-haired Italian chap. So when you put me on a board in some deep swells (fine, 6-8 feet, but STILL), you better fetch the lifeguard. Please take the photo evidence from the beach over the weekend with a grain of salt - or, in my case, a bucket of saltware.Of course, a big thanks goes out to John, for generous donation of his board. Take a bow, John:
