Everyting Bless My Boi!

Every once in a while, it's a good ting to take a step back and reflect on life and your blessings. Happiness, health, peace of mind, great friends, supporting family, beautiful memories, firing waves and a house I can call home. What are you thankful for?

Home Sweet Home

Just got back on island and the swell is pumping. . . Clean 10-12ft faces dump onto all exposed reefs/beaches on the Northside! Pretty nice for how bad the season has been to us this year.

Final Countdown: Wedge

Last day in Cali, after an amazing wrap session featured in the Ironic I Street post, I shot these waves before dark after packing up and saying our goodbyes. It's always hard to leave when the waves are empty and clean especially at The Wedge. The first sequence of shots are Omar with the no grab and grom Jeremiah Sheldon. Its pretty amazing the people and places you encounter through the sport of skim boarding and I wanna encourage anyone who's passionate about the sport to plan a trip to Laguna Beach, California. Big Ups to our SkimCaribbean Family, Mom, Dad and everyone else who we didn't mention that helped make this trip possible.

Ironic I Street

Usually when you shoot photographs, they tend to make the waves look better than they are. However, today was a different story. After getting some proof, I sprinted home for my board and suit. The flawless offshore breeze, onshore head high tubes and fast water combo had me freaking out throughout the session. One of the best wrap sessions of my life my far! Give Thanks!!!!

Green Eggs n Am: Aliso

This past weekend the Green Eggs n Ams was held in some pretty big Aliso, only allowing whitewash wraps and the occasional sider. Nick lopez did his best but the locals had the sider on lock. With the forecast for the next couple days pretty much the same size, the boys decided to hit the skate park. We sat back and let the locals show us how its done, although there were some fun runs in the people park! Afterwords we did out usually wedge check and this is how it was.
