In 2014 I went surfing 20 times. I really wish I had kept a log of where I went and what it was like. So this year i am going to keep a DimExcusesSurf record of every surf session, including where and what the conditions were like.
I aim to surf 21 times this year. I was going to call this plan Project 21, or some twist on the spelling, Projekt 21, Projext 21 etc. But it seems every single one of those hashtags is heavily used. So I have reverted to my Celtic routes and gone for a Welsh name for my plan to surf 21 times this year (in the DimExcuses bi-lingual tradition). Coming from the welsh verb ‘to venture’, welcome to Mentro 21.
Or should I say Mentro Dau Ddeg Un? #Mentro21. DimExcuses.
