Taking your daughters on a surf trip, and more California stoke

  • We've been back for a few days and I still can't seem to find the right words to describe how amazing our trip was.  We went to San Diego last summer and loved it, so we decided to go back again this winter and to check out LA too.  We loved it even more this time.

    Some of the highlights- my 7 year old spontaneously running up the nose of Daddy's board on her first wave in 5 months.  My 5 year old riding switchstance.  Both of them riding tandem.  Driving up to LA and finding an almost empty right point somewhere between Chart House and Malibu (Topanga maybe?), where we all paddled out and surfed together.  Sharing the lineup at Malibu with dolphins, a seal, some old guys who have been surfing there since the 60s and were talking about their very first wetsuit (which he just bought), and a few hipsters (I know, they're everywhere).  Feeling like I was floating as I looked down from the nose of my board at San O, in absolute disbelief that I was totally held in place and still up there (thank you Mr. Takayama, you are a master). 

    I could go on and on, but I don't think I'll be able to really convey how absolutely incredible last week was.  Here are some photos.  I hope you like them- they're all burned into my memory forever.   :)

    you may have missed your appearance in the newspaper while you were gone. if i track down a copy, I'll scan it into the galleries for you.

  • Fantastic stuff.
    I've gotten into taking my 7 yr. old daughter tandem surfing lately and it's pretty fun.
    I take my 2 yr. old son also(he belly rides and talks trash about how big the waves are).

    There is no greater stoke than that.
