BACK ON THE WAVE

247 followers

The air crackled with ozone and anticipation. Salt stung Ben's eyes as he stared at the Pacific, its surface a restless expanse reflecting the setting sun. He'd been here a hundred times, but today felt different. This wasn't just another surf session. This was a comeback. Four years ago, Ben had been a wave magnet. Fearless, fluid, his board an extension of his soul. Then, the accident. Dislocated shoulder, shattered dreams. The ocean, once his playground, became a source of fear. He traded the roar of the waves for the hum of fluorescent lights, the feel of saltwater for the grip of a corporate ladder. But the ocean called. It whispered in his sleep, tugged at him like an invisible tide. Today, he answered. His board, once a trophy, felt heavy in his hands. Doubt gnawed at him like a rip current pulling him under. Could he still do it? Was he "back on the wave" or just a washed-up wannabe? Hesitantly, he paddled out, muscles groaning in protest. The waves mocked him, playful giants rolling towards him, only to break just out of reach. Frustration welled up, burning his throat. Then, a lull. The ocean seemed to hold its breath. Ben, gathering his courage, caught a small wave. It wasn't the monster he used to ride, but it was enough. He found his rhythm, the familiar dance of push and pull, the rush of adrenaline as he glided across the water's surface. It wasn't perfect. His body ached, his skills rusty. But he was riding. He was laughing, the salt no longer stinging but invigorating. He wasn't the same surfer he once was, but he didn't need to be. He was back on the wave, not conquering it, but embracing it, adapting to it. As the sun dipped below the horizon, painting the sky in fiery hues, Ben emerged from the water, legs wobbly but heart full. He wasn't just riding a wave; he was riding a wave of change. He carried the lessons of the fall – resilience, humility, the power of second chances. Back on the beach, he looked at his board, no longer a trophy, but a companion. The ocean stretched before him, vast and ever-changing. He knew he wouldn't always be riding the crest, but he'd learned to navigate the swells, the dips, the wipeouts. He was back on the wave, not of his past, but of his present, ready to face whatever came his way, one ride at a time.
