All species that spend time in water adapt to it. Including us. We adapt our bodies with layers that protect us and make us feel more comfortable. We adapt our spirit to a different surrounding. It’s a process in which we begin to retract from the world we are born and transcend to the one we chose. The sensation is incomparable. We look around. We are free. And that is not all. Out there we are ourselves. Learning something new each day and building on the same foundation. Caring for the place where we are truly happy. Protecting it, conserving it. Offering tribute to each moment for doing what we enjoy. Because living a life in the water is much more than a sport. It’s realizing that we are now part of a place in which we once entered and never left.
