1.14 - Surfrider

FERRY BEACH, FEBRUARY, 1998 - Simple exercise is the best medicine, simple, basic workouts. Walking. Perfect exercise. Bicycle riding. Great exercise. Walking in sand is a fabulous way to build up your legs, especially your calves. Swimming, some people say, is the ultimate full body workout. (I disagree with that. I think swimming is just a way to keep from drowning.)

Combining these activities is a passion with some islanders, though the results can be less than spectacular. Bicycle riding in the sand is a skill that takes much careful development. Here we see one resident who miscalculated the depth of the powdery sand and is having a go at it through axle-deep drifts. This is a great way to build up the quads, and severely strain the hamstrings.
