The greatest lesson to be had when being a surf instructor is how to remain calm when you have no control over the environment around you. The best thing you can do is keep your head clear, act to the best of your possibilities and focus on having a good time. It is then when you get the best results. Like in any aspiration, it is practise that makes perfect, so you just as well enjoy while you're at it. These are some of the lessons I carry on into all my life's endeavors.
