Just before the sun peeped her head over the sea, there was a group of boys standing just at the edge of the sand, waiting. Rugged up in hoodies, all looking out across the ocean. Then, anticipating the moment, right as the first golden light flooded across the beach, they were stripped down, just wetsuits and surfboards, sprinting toward the waves. Their laughter filled the air, the squeak of the sand trailing behind as they flew across toward the water. None would have been older than 12, all with a confidence of having done this for years. Their faces shining in the golden morning glow. The curfew was lifted with first light. They were in and ready to surf.
