    When in Aberdeen to deliver a winter forecasting workshop, I took the opportunity to shadow DeBroy for a shift, in order to better understand the relationships between the Marine environment, Marine customers, their vessels, Marine forecasters, Marine NWP and Marine met theory; all with a view to developing the Met Office Wave Forecasting course. My motives were to make my teaching of the subject relevant to the job (which I had never actually done) rather than to simply convey my enthusiasm for the subject (which as an experienced surfer, I can not help but do).
