Sometimes, in all our lives, we will all fall off the wave.
The wave is a metaphor and it will mean different things for people and at different stages of our lives. It could be a particular skill, a career, anything. You are a student of life, constantly developing and growing (whether you know it or not).
Being a student means to try things beyond your known ability, this will lead to you making mistakes or not succeeding at times. You need to develop strength and new skills. One day you will succeed, you can become an expert and yes, even then you will make mistakes and fail at times.
Failure is not the end, don’t give up, don’t take it personally, learn from your experience.
The lesson from this surfer is you just try again. (here was his next wave)
