This is my very first time surfing so
I’m really excited… I’m kind of afraid there’s going to be sharks
but hopefully there’s not going to be any I’m very excited, but I’m also nervous because
it’s my first time And, I’m a bit scared of the sea… I feel… so great! Do you like surfing? Oh my god, do you know, it was my… it was one of the things on my bucket list! Ahh! Are you looking forward to surfing, or nervous? To be honest, this is my first time surfing
so I’m really looking forward to learning! (Shimon and Richelle are chatting) Richelle: When I got here, there weren’t so many people in the class Yeah, so you can talk to the teacher and ask questions Yeah, really more personal, and hands on with teacher and student I like it! I feel like sometimes other besties are a
little bit different from us, because they are talking about, like, job interviews, the future, internships
(Richelle) talking about the future Yeah, so I feel like, oh And we’re here talking about starting out! And this is really good exposure for us
and a really good time for us to learn as well This is the perfect time to think about what
we want to do. I think that’s great though, in Queensland

what to do. Wow!!! Yay!! We have arrived in Currumbin! What do you study? Accounting and finance! I study English. Oh ok cool! So hard… Haha, yeah, so hard. Chase: Ok guys, welcome to Currumbin Alley! Firstly I have to go over a couple of things. I am a goofy footer, so that means my left
