Governor Lincoln Chafee said he’s “still sore” after learning to surf in Costa Rica during the holiday break. “We had some big sets come in and, you know, getting through those big waves breaking over your board,” he said. “It was kind of scary at times, I will say.”
But mostly, he said, the waves were “gentle” and it was “kind of a beginners’ area” as he and his “college-aged children” learned to surf together.
“We got up at dawn every morning to catch the early morning waves and then come back exhausted and come back for the evening waves.”
