I just returned home from a very memorable surf trip to El Salvador. After a long winter, I felt it very necessary to hang with Kimmy, air out my toes a bit, and get some warm water surfing in. Turns out we couldn’t have timed it better… A group of 8 of us went for a week and ended up scoring head high swell the entire time.

It was a pretty standard Central American experience… To start it off, Travis got stung by a sting ray and had to get two shots in his ass on a road side grocery store counter top. Then we had some real greasy food, rum and cervesas, food poisoning, bed bugs, dinged boards, followed be Shane receiving four sketchy stitches in his shin from a deep reef cut. All in all I say we did pretty good. Here are some pics to give you a visual of the trip, also click this link for a full album: El Sal Surf Mission

Enjoy!

Trying to get some tunnel vision.

My moment: This was just one of many adventures. I was in Portillo, Chile with photographer Adam Clark hiking a long steep couloir on a stormy day. Traveling, hiking, skinning, and skiing continues to teach me about myself, mother nature, solitude, respect, humility, challenges, and strength. These moments and experiences are where I want to spend my days. I’m very fortunate, and love what I do… Go share a moment with the rest of us by clicking on the pic… www.meetthemoment.com
