DTube: "Heartbeat" - She's Surfing Again! ▶️

in dtube •  9 months ago

Yesterday I enjoyed my very first surf session after one month of illness. It was also my very first recording with the new GoPro Hero 6 in the water.

To be honest the session felt like my second birth - not only becaus it was quite hard to get out there paddling against the currents, haha!

Man, did you ever take a longer break from sports and then came back and thought you could just take up your original fitness level? Puuuh, after only one hour I was completely exhausted.

Still I needed that surf so much in many senses! The mandatory break was tough to handle from a mental perspective, since I'm not used to live without sports at all. I really need it to feel good - and complete.

Now you won't see impressive shots catching waves in my today's video, buuuuut the beginning of the clip pretty much reveals how it felt when I was approaching the beach yesterday. My heart was beating as if I was on my way to the first day at school :-)

That gave the name to my today's video: HEARTBEATS.

I hope you enjoyed it! Let me know in the comments.

Much love,
Marly -

So schaut's aus, haha!

Awesome - I bet it's great to get back in the water.

I'm actually testing out the SwellTech SurfSkate for a review on our blog at the moment.

So far, I've found that the board responds very similarly to a surfboard - which is incredible. Hopefully this will keep me sharp while I'm out of the water 🏄


Now that's pretty cool! Have you tried the Carver, too - and if yes how would you describe the differences between Carver and SurfSkate? I have a Carver, and it helps me a lot to improve my surfing.

Awesome - I bet it's great to get back in the water.

Oh I have no words, it was massive! After one month I was almost driving crazy not being able to surf. Now life does make sense again :-)


Not yet - if I test it out soon I'll let you know :D


Thats incredibly cool a neat approach towards the waves, I think you should make some how to surf videos now? Get well soon with the bronchitis thing😪


Thank you! I'm almost fully recovered. Yesterday I got an important mental boost with that surf session, the rest is gonna be easy.

One of my brothers told me the same! :-) Maybe I'll do some surf tutorials one day. Good idea!

It's good to see to rocking again. Your fitness level is really awesome. Your enthusiasm about sports and surfing is really inspirational.


Sweet! Thank you :-)
I've always been much into sports. To me it's the best way of living a balanced, thus both phyiscally and mentally healthy life.


May you be blessed with health and happiness:) Your life is really inspirational.

You looked like a ballerina getting up on the surfboard (so elegant)!

PS - Is this beach in South Africa?


Haha, thanks for your lovely words! You made my day :-) I rather felt like an elephant - lol
That beach is located on the Canary Island "Lanzarote".

Great to see you back in the water! And stay healthy! :)


Thank you! It felt amazingly good :-)


Glad to hear that! :) I did some bodyboarding this weekend...always good times too

hows your health right now after one month ohh :O i hope you are feeling better now <3 seems like you enjoyed and how about stamina because one month illness could have ruined all of your stamina ??

You sure seems to enjoying after a month gap ;)


You have no idea how much!! :-)


Well more are gonna come in the coming days, RIGHT ;)

After almost one month it really seems unrealistic but your ways and techniques are quite impressive. Due to gap of one month the curves of the waves seem difficult to handle but you did really well, Marly :)

Stay Blessed, Steem On!


Today the ocean was pretty rought, so I had actually no chance to show my best techniques here :-) It's winter, so the swell's quite strong and waves don't break very smoothly. In a couple of weeks it'll be easier to handle.

Thanks for your encouragement!


I would really love to watch your skills in couple of weeks <3

You are always welcome the wonderful Soul :)


I'm pretty sure it's gonna be on dtube :-)

Wow amiga me alegro mucho que hallas recuperado para hacer lo que te gusta, se ve y se nota la adrenalina al Surfear increíble, quisiera vivir esa hermosa experiencia :D


Muchas gracias! La verdad que sí lo he disfrutado a tope, especialmente porque no pude coger olas durante tanto tiempo. La adrenalina forma parte del juego así como las endorfinas :-)


Imagino, nadie puede parar tanto tiempo de hacer lo que le gusta, la playa es en lanzarote? alli vive una parte de mi familia :D

I really envy you @surfermarly in a good way. Where I am, it is only show and dull grey sky.


I'll send you some sunrays! :-)

For me the big waves big it's scary

Your post is very good, full of education and knowledge, I like to read the contents of your blog post, I really like, would you visit my blog?


@surfermarly really like your dtube videos your vlogs are just so good that if I at some point of time start doing vloging then you will be my motivation ... Keep steeming !!!!!!

aaahh !!! That's great that you are back !!

The beginning of the video definitely felt like first day of your school as you said it. But when you are surfing already, it's like you are with your baby again!!

I wish to talk technical stuff about surfing after I start learning it myself next month :D

Hi @surfermarly, it is only information about surfer spot in Sumatera Indonesia, you may have visited these places, Nort Nias-Nias Island-North Sumatera, Katiet-Siberut-Mentawai-West Sumatera, and the The area of Bunta Island-Lhok Nga Beach, Weh Island Sabang-Aceh. some says those places are good,sorry dont have pic for those spot

nice dtube video. I like your post very much.
thanks for sharing.

That surf looks pretty heavy, that will test you after a month laid up. I’m glad you’re felling better. We’ve had 2-4m seas here for the past few days from a Cyclone in the coral sea.

welcome back to the water. Sorry to hear you were out for so long.

Also know that if you ever come to San Diego, I'd love to paddle out with you.

Keep the posts coming.

Hi there, beautiful pictures! If you're not feeling well, I saw a lot of the flu epidemic and I follow naturalnews.com for reference sake, I'd say from my own experience it's not bad to take extra cod liver oil for the real vitamin D. I take Blue Ice Royal and it's amazing stuff, has also K2 in it. Also juicing tumeric and ginger is pretty darn amazing too. Wrote about it called it my NZT experience. Have a nice time and be vibrant! Love, N

Really enjoyed that post keep up the good work 👏
