I went out on the lake this afternoon with some friends. My host brother Andreas and his friends went in together to buy this sweet little boat this Spring. It was 55 degrees out, but Andy was up for adventure. I was content to ride, having already failed the wakeboard last time. I’m good with sports where you face forwards: skiing, waterskis, kneeboards, and biking…but I can’t get the hang of sideways sports like wakeboarding, skateboarding, and snowboarding. Ah well…I had fun.
