Getting Ready for Hawaii

Key words & Phrases

  • hang ten 


    サーフィンにはロングボードとショートボードと有りますが、Hang Tenはロングボードの技です。テイクオフ(ボードの上に立つ)してから、ボードの上を歩きボードのノーズ(先端)に両足をそろえてライディングすることをHang Tenと言います。厳密にはボードの端を脚の指でつかむような姿勢です。両足の10本でボードをつかんでいる様から、Hang Tenと言うようになりました。

  • used to 前やったことは、今もうしない。例えば、I used to work at Sony, but now I work at Miami.
  • relatives親戚
  • reservation 予約
  • give it your best shot 頑張って!

Easy part 簡単 You can do it!

I'm getting a little nervous now. I am leaving for Hawaii in one week. I have already made my hotel and car rental reservations. I just need to get my documents together and think about what I want to take with me.  This time I will take souvenirs for my relatives. However, I have so many relatives in Hawaii, it is difficult to decide what I should get and for whom. 

Hard part チャレンジ  Give it your best shot!

This will be me in one week.....maybe?
Besides seeing my relatives again, one thing I am looking forward to is surfing.  Actually, I have never been surfing before, so it will be my first time to "hang ten".  I used to windsurf in Miurakaigan and Florida, but I have never been surfing on waves without a sail.  I hope it isn't to difficult. I don't have a lot of time to learn, but I want to enjoy it as much as I can. I did a little research about lessons on the net, and they seem pretty expensive. Maybe I should just watch some You Tube how-to videos and give it my best shot.
