Mix things up...........................


       Seventh, mix it up.  As the seasons change, switch up the surf breaks and equipment.  In California, when the swells come from the South Pacific, from mid-spring through mid-fall, you'll probably what to surf the south-facing breaks, and then in winter, with chillier air and water temps, the north-facing breaks.  Push yourself a little, so as to keep things interesting.  And maybe, so as to constantly progress rather than stagnate, try different surfboard shapes.  Each one helps you see the wave slightly differently, so as to take a different, new approach and develop your surfing in a new direction.  Try playing a new instrument.  Do a new kind of art or craft project.  Read a new genre of books,
