Finley was 5 years old when I was pushing him into tiny reforms on little alaia. I would watch him from behind and I could see his head going towards shore. One whitewash reformed into a wave with shape and I hoped he may angle across it. But, I just about had a heart attack as I saw the shadow of his head through the wave go so fast that I thought he would for sure get hurt. I wasn’t expecting that at all! Such is the speed of the prone alaia.
