Moving to California?
Friday, March 09, 2007

So it was like this.... a sunny California morning, clean glassy 4foot waves on a reef break, no battling to get out back, just a paddle out on flat water; turn, wait and surf back in towards the shore at Sunset Cliffs. Alun and Jake were ripping it up on either side of me and pelicans were crusing by in convoy just above the waves. I found myself thinking I could every easily move to California!!! And after 3 days in the Spyder surf boat I'm finally getting to grips with it. Instead of catching an edge and flipping on almost every wave, I'm feeling comfortable turning it on the wave and really enjoying it. We had the pleasure of meeting the man known only as Spike (!), who designed the boat and I can aspire to be able to do some of the things that he can in it!

We had a good time filming in Baja with Jen & Jake from Aqua Adventures, and the Johnson Outdoor Crew. It's a beautiful stretch of coastline about 2.5 hours drive south of San Diego and we enjoyed rock hopping and touring in the sun. We have some great shots which will be fun to edit. It was all topped off with delicious food cooked by Jock Bradley. Some work is better than other work !! The photo is of Jeff from Canoe & Kayak magazine by the largest blow hole in the world.

We're off to Canoecopia tomorrow with a bright and early flight to Chicago.... I better go and get organised!

You were surfing in my old backyard! I lived about 100 meters from those cliffs for four years so feel a pang of jealousy when I see these pics! Here I am living in Connecticut now with 34 degree water around me and California warm water beckoning!

Oh, the PAIN!
