Annual Soul Surfer's Classic
filled up we were off to Santa Monica where we stayed in a little
motel overlooking the giant ferris wheel. This way when we woke
up we would be closer to next event, The Soul Surfer's Classic
which was the 4th annual surf contest put on by the BLACK
only way to describe that next day was: Epic! We were one of the
first to arrive and the last to leave. In between was a mixture
of joy, serenity, laughter, enlightenment, love, hope, welcoming
and good surfing! We filmed and surfed all day long. We met amazing
people. Even though we did horribly in the contest the day was
time we did partake in the beach barbecue for lunch but our souls
were so full that our stomachs still felt like they were starving
in comparison so we headed to another taqueria to fill the void.
From there we were off to Dogtown to visit Jason's old stomping
grounds and stay with one of his crew from back in the day. Along
the way Jason shared great tales of their endless adventures.
night we laid low in Dogtown. Just as we were in maximum chill
mode, however, the spirit of the area came into us and three guitars
came out, the lighting kit came out, the camera came out and we
had an impromptu jam session before completely settling in for
another deep sleep.
woke casually in the morning and took a stroll down to the infamous
Dogtown boardwalk. There we were a part of a miraculous spontaneous
reunion between Jason and much of his old crew who were now sharing
their love of the beach with their families! We also just happened
across the prolific person behind the surf blog: THE
SURF AND THE FURY.
