Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. Surfing, a sport very typical for the people that live in the beach. In many seas the waves can reach an important height. Many people wait this days for surfing the waves. Im Spain isn't very common this type of waves, but in Portugal, for example in Nazaré, it's very normal this type of events.

    Surfing is very complicated and very dangerous. The people must be very concentrated and very relaxed. You must climb up to waves very highest while behind them come another type of huge waves. If you fall from a wave, can be very dangerous because you can die drowned. For this reason, the people train during a lot of time. Since they are children train with his family or friends with more little waves.

    In my opinion this people have great value, because it isn't easy to surf a wave and go out in peace. I would like surfing someday but it's very complicated because for this we must train a lot of. But I have a friend that surfing every summer and I want see him any day and I try with his board.
