Water Lover Fluff started the first Surf Lesson...
Not that I was totally not expecting it, but I am still beyond excited; Day1 of surf lesson went SUPER for Super Snowy & Super Crystal!!!!
The malts have never seen a surf board before. They are however into dock diving already. They are the smallest water dogs over here. Totally love water sports and anything that has to do with water, so I thought that surfing will be something that will interest them.
I got a surf board for them & my bro 2 days ago. Yesterday, we went for the malts' very first surf lesson.
I didn't want to jump into surfing straight away. I always like to break whatever I teach into steps, especially when it comes to this as the malts don't have life jackets yet (They always dived & swam without life jackets, relying on their own body and legs - and were always fine and capable of doing
... however, with surfing, I plan to take them where very small waves can be found -at certain times/certain spots, very small waves can be found- and for that, I would allow them to do with life jackets on). Anyways, for yesterday's lesson, they didn't require it. it was more of an introduction to surf board kind of lesson.
They showed no fear from the board.
It was more of a "this is a surf board. You stay on it, maltese pup. You do not use it as a dock dive surface" sort of lesson (since they already master dock diving & love it so much, but they got my message on the board...look at happy looking boy Snowy <3)
In addition, it was a "balance on surf" sort of lesson. Moving board on water does require the balance.
The little tricky part at the very first beginning (after being introduced to surf board) was how to "get on the board". The malts started it by going through its sides. And when they did that in @ first in water, it was slipping at its sides, not having them succeed to get on it
....when all of a sudden, Crystal made her very first jump on the board and stayed balanced!! ALRIGHT!!! yes, the girl started the cool move
