After hanging out in newport for a few days, we headed down to Carlsbad/Encinitas to hang out with a bunch of friends (Banks Gilberti, Stefi Luxton, Jossi Wells and his fiancee Hannah, kiwi snowboarder Possum Torr among others). We went surfing and watched the world cup, and just had a great time in general. California in the summer is pretty awesome, I could definitely see myself living here for a year or so.
Some photos from the day:
Sofia enjoying the sun and the water in Encinitas. Such a chill spot to hang out.
Watching soccer with the dawgs.
Sofia and another dawg.
Surfing, sun and too much Chipotle makes Jacob a sleepyhead.
Getting ready for a sunset surf with Banks. He is not as short as this photo makes him out to be.
One of the funnest longboard spots I have surfed. It’s a long way from grinding indonesian barrels, but really fun and relaxing for a change.
After a 6 month break from surfing this is how excited I get. Anyone who surfs knows how much better of a person you become after a session.
Yesterday we packed up and left SoCal for Vegas, and this place is insane. I will drop a post on all the craziness here tomorrow. Now we’re off to the pool for a beer and some gambling later. Peace!
