Surf the Dirt

Dirtsurfing is huge.

It's even big here and here in Portugal.

You better beleive it, baby.

Dirtsurfing is riding around on a two-wheeled aluminium frame at 80km/h, over taking cars, riding 3 inches above the tarmac and dirt-paths carved out by bad weather... and feeling the wind... oh the wind...

I took up dirtsurfing about a year ago when Jonnydirt introduced me to this wild world.

It is such a rush... huge amount of adrenaline. I guess I get 95% of the rush thinking about whether my brakes will fail...

(Yes... we do have brakes. Whether we use them or not is debatable)

Caught myself thinking this on saturday morning.

Looks like morning in your eyes
But the clock's held 9:15 for hours

Couldn't tempt us if it tried
Cuz the afternoon's already come and gone

And I said Hooo, hooo, hooo
To you

Surprise Surprise
Couldn't find it in your eyes
But I'm sure it's written all over my face
Surprise Surprise
Never something I could hide
When I see we made it through another day

Then I say Hooo, hooo, hooo
To you
And now the night
Will throw its cover down, ooo, on me again
Ooh, and if I'm right
It's the only way to bring me back

Hooo, hooo, hooo
To you Hooo, yeah, hooo, hooo

To you
