Take a strange journey toward spirit: In my mind, I saw the young people I had come to know as I had begun this strange surfing thing. I smiled at the fun wed had together. In my minds eye I could clearly see each of them striving to catch waves. I sat on the rock, thinking about these battered young surfers. Geek, Monstro, Squirrel, Cowboy, Rude Kurt. Each had a vision, each an anger or history they were working out. But in surfing, their vision and anger were purified into charged spirit, inspiration, as they applied their skills to attempt beauty with the earth, to ride the wave in grace. Their efforts were toward joy. And they were stoked.
