I was afraid to try surfing but one lesson changed everything

The Sweeney family is always up for a challenge... as long as it's on land. When we heard that we were chosen to hit the waves and take a surfing lesson on a Montauk beach, I have to admit that we were both excited and nervous. This was very much out of our comfort zone! But there were plenty of laughs and cheers along the way. Did we all make it up on our two feet by the end of the day? You'll just have to check out the video to see.
