"Hatsu Umi (初海)" is a translated word from a Japanese expression.
It means the first visit to the ocean in the new year.
(Hatsu means the first and Umi means the sea)
In Japan, we call that kind of situation "Hatsu plus something".

I went surfing at Dee Why Beach.
Early in the morning, it was cloudy unlike the predicted weather forecast
and I thought I chose the wrong day again.

However, when I got to the beach, the weather was getting better.
Since the board I used today was smaller than the one last time,
I still had some difficulties.
I couldn't make the board stable on the water, and my paddling was very weak.
I then learned how to surf without standing instead.
I could feel that I was able to ride on the waves and control the direction which I'd like to go in.
I thought I was more athletic, but I don't think I have the knack for doing it.
I really need to practice more

What have you done as the first thing this year

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.
1. wuss (on TV)
= a stupid person
2. meatball (on TV)
= a dull or stupid person
3. offal (on TV)
= the entrails and internal organs of an animal used as food
