As a teenager growing up on Sydney's Northern Beaches I loved to surf, much preferring the ocean to Pittwater as you never knew what lurked beneath that dark still water. I was once held under by a large wave and from that time have had a fear of big surf and of drowning. I still love the water but that moment from all those years ago stays with me as does that sense of unease when it comes to still water.
