California Coast.

Before my big trip to Argentina with Smith Optics I decided to take a short trip to the coast.  I had a few objectives other than surfing so it turned out to be a worthwhile trip.  I was able to visit sony Headquarters and have lunch with the Action cam crew.  I picked up some new stuff since I lost a camera at West Coast Sessions (if you found it please return)! Powder magazine also moved down to Carlsbad so I dropped in and said hello.  Print season is in full swing and they were in the process of finalizing the October issue.  Making a magazine is busy work but they still find time to enjoy the surf and most of the Powder employees are part of a recreational kickball team.  As for my own surfing experience, I learned alot during my time in the waves.  I enjoy surfing because it is a sport that I did not try until I was in my 20’s, which makes it a bit more challenging to learn but so rewarding at the same time.  The fact that there are no photos of me surfing in this blog should tell you that I am still a novice at the sport but I love it and still dream about paddling out into that double overheader.
