The Wave


Hawke's Bay

Jake, 12

The bright sun was glistening on the blue sea and the sand burning my feet. Sprinting for water closing my eyes hoping, when finally the cold water started colliding with my feet and the water splashing coming down on the water like little bombs.Then I fell over a wave, the water surrounding my face it felt like I was in the arctic without hesitation pulled my face out of the water got back up than a wave was heading straight the white breaking waves smashing the water heading straight I closed my eyes and then I was underwater this time rolling with the wave.
