Surfing poem about the magic of duckdiving.

Ode to the Duckdive


Throwing gravity aside

this is the magical enchantment

of the duck dive

Surfer God

Changing atmospheres

From liquid to gas

Body reborn

euphoric in the presence of eminent danger

Some how defying nature’s authority

Against gravitational forces




Calling me

to that bone yard reef

That graveyard of epoxy and resin

Where the tombstones are surfboards broken in half

I become death’s passenger

Floating towards the light

Rays of angels surround me

as this miraculous extension of me

This powerful staff

propels me through Hades

The underworld holds me back

The water demons grab hold of my legs

while my surfboard carries me

into the sunlight

I have survived

For the time being

Now paddle like mad

Cause here comes the sets!!!

Excerpt from:
By: Joseph DeMarco
