    Oh, that sinking feeling is so familair to me. Fortunately life operates in wave patterns .. we travel from wave top to wave dale. So, I can promise you, you soon will feel like a happy seagull drifting on a strong thermal. I am sure wave dale is bad English … what is a golfdal?

  • I was going to be clever and look for a surfing term / jargon, using Google
    but there does not seem to be a term for the trough of the wave (the lowest part).

    Strange. It always strikes me the English has a much richer vocabulary than the Dutch language. I mean, it is so much richer in possibilities to describe nuances. That is why comic BBC series are so funny. Humour is like walking on the tight rope of nuances and the English language has such a rich pallet of words that are rather similar but have just a slightly different meaning. Well, the trough of the wave is satisfying too.
