情境介紹

Eric出差來到了正值夏天的南半球,週末參加澳洲黃金海岸的短期衝浪課程,當地教練Don

很開心地帶著Eric來到岸邊......

Don: Look at the swells1 ! It’s really pumping2 today.

Eric: Uh…What?

Don: Sorry, dude3 . Let me translate. The surf 4 is up; the waves are really good. Are you stoked5 for

your first lesson?

Eric: Totally!

Don: L ook at that bodyboarder6 … he’s dropping in on that surfer. Not cool! Remember rule number one in surfing: Never drop in on another surfer!

Eric: Never cut someone off. Got it.

Don: Now, let’s get your gear7 . Longboards8 are more stable and easier to stand up on. Then you need a wetsuit9 and a leash10 so that you don’t lose your board when you wipe out11.

Eric: OK… can I borrow some money?

Don: Sure. But don’t be a sponge.

Eric: Easier said than done... (laughs)

Don: Ca tching a wave and standing up require flexibility, speed and balance. But with practice, you will hang ten12 .

Eric: L i k e the clothing store?

Don: Haha. No, that means to hang all ten toes off the front of the surfboard.

Eric: Is that even possible?

Don: When you have pumping waves and ripping13 skills, anything is possible.

Don: 看那swells,今天浪真的很pumping。
