Yeah, this one is coming in a little bit late (for a monday). But, hey I flew in on a redeye, have spent several hours sifting through 1000’s of frames and still managed to eat, take a nap and do laundry. So the untimeliness of this post has nothing to do with laziness. Or reverse that. Or whatever. Anyway, I had a fantastic time in CA. Another huge thanks to Converse. It didn’t even really feel like work. I was able to hang out with some of my pre-existing friends, and make several new ones. There was quite literally never a dull moment (except for when I was asleep [which was not very many moments]).
In addition to the surfing, there was plenty of skateboarding to be seen. Converse built a huge bowl on the beach. I had a blast all week watching the likes of Pedro Barros (above) hucking themselves around the bowl and into the air. Here are a few more pics from the weekend–
