Surfing was not
my first love.
No, my first love was a 24" bicycle with a foot brake and no gears, belonging to one of the kids across the road. No bike helmet. No footwear. No worries.
I'm still riding a bike with a foot brake and a 24" tyre on the back - except the tyre is a big fat 3" cruiser variety!
