What Neil Does for Fun

Neil has been an avid bodysurfer since his mid-teens and has chased waves on both US coasts and in Hawaii, Australia, Mexico, Central and South America, and Africa.

The ultimate in this wonderful pastime is to emulate (as closely as a mere human can) the seemingly magical way sea lions and dolphins traverse the surf, either riding ahead of a wave’s shoulder, or totally immersed and speeding like a torpedo, or enveloped in a timeless tube and ending the ride in a crashing, satisfying barrel.
