breakfast of champions

Or how to make SHAKSHUKA... We learn all these different strokes when beginning to kayak, braces, rudders, rolls, skulling , and the list goes on and on. The other day a new student asked me , when learning the basics, "and when do I use this", I answered, first learn the strokes and then you can use them instinctively.So he did. Now I have a short video of Lev,[ not the guy in the story], showing a few braces, rolls and skulling in the small waves on the shore. And then Yuval and Sagi made us a SHAKSHUKA for breakfast. Shakshuka, meaning all shook up, is a very popular Israeli dish made with tomatoes, onions, peppers and eggs. First you fry up a good amount of onions tomatoes and peppers, and whatever else you have handy in a bit of olive oil. When its done you break a few eggs gently into the mixture and let them cook slowly. The dish is usually served in the pan as you can see in the pictures. You need a good bread to mop up the tasty juice too. A glass of Ouzo helps too.
