That time I was younger, littler, but stronger than now. At that time I could fall down as many time possible, but in the next second I would be standing again. Is strange how people grow up, but can become weaker than before, that day I could almost die with that deep blue in my vision but right after standup again and repeat the same thing. My family always made road trip in the final of year to South beaches. The car was always our purple Ford Ká, bags always were in the foot place, at that time I and my brother were too small so we only slept on the bags we just put our head in the bags and looked to the car’s back window to fall asleep.

On the first day we went to a lake, we learned how to put the surf clothes and trained how to stand up in the surfboard. In the sand making a line all the students was training how to jump. The thing I remember most of this day “Don’t stand in your knees before standing up!”.

The captain stopped and turned to me “you know how to swim?” with this question he pushed my surfboard away. I caught my board again, I was scary, he just said “It was just to have certain that you can swim”.
