The Hungry Blue

The kid looked back at the empty shore. No sign of movement. Puzzled, he lay upon his surfboard, lolling to the gentle rhythm of the ocean.

For a time he drifted alone between sea and sun, until a fast-rising hiss made him turn. More in amazement than fear he watched the sky-high wall of water bear down upon him, breaking, plumy crest reaching for him like taloned fingers.

When it was done the others strolled down onto the beach.
