My good friend James took a break from his panamerican moto trip on pause in Alaska to come down to Santa Barbara, hang, and work on another project. Even though we both love working on photo stuff, it gave us an excuse to share laughs, revisit old memories, and enjoy each other's sacred company. "Looks good to me. I'm down to grab a board and wetsuit, hike down, and see if it's worth it to even paddle out in. Worth a shot." James and I had been drinking some coffee while watching waves roll in, and decided we had nothing better to do than go for it. As I stood up to start gathering gear, 3 cups of coffee and a lot in my system was finally starting to work its magic.
