Surfing Laguna: Get new perspective from the water

In today's hi-fi daily routine, has disconnecting ever felt so good?

Can we go a day without a cell phone, text, tweet or e-mail?

Do you get the shakes if you don't check your favorite website frequently though the day?

Have you changed your Facebook status today? Come on!

I want to be a digital dinosaur for a day.

Daylight saving time is upon us this weekend and with it comes longer, warmer days — a perfect time to turn off, suit up and drop in.

Getting out in the surf is a healthy affair, great for everyone looking to get recharged.

Do you know the sensation of duck-diving through a cool, crisp ocean wave? It can transform your whole day, leaving behind life's little burdens in your wake.

The view. Being in the ocean offers a view that simply can't be matched on land. Talk about a change of perspective.

The peace. You can paddle away from the bustling pack, think, meditate and pray all with little or no distractions — save for the occasional dolphin-sighting.
