BAJA-LIDAY STRIKE MISSION // A PHOTO JOURNAL BY REEF ADVENTURE SEEKER LOGAN RAUHUT
Thursday late night: Dig out of Ventura and drive south to Venice. LA traffic is worth the reward. We stopped at watched Corey Harper perform at the Winston House. He even got to play with the Shins…
Friday dawn patrol: Triple check the gear: Surfboards, Wetsuits, Reef Rovers. Coffee, Passport, Mexican Car Insurance.
The waves were pumping. Less shooting, and lots of surfing. My girlfriend Lily hung out on the beach of San Miguel so long I thought we would have turned into a crab.
As the sun dipped, we explored the mountain roads. Just over Salsipuedes, we poked up over the clouds and into the dark.
Friday night: Karaoki bar and Coronas.
Saturday morning: Day 2 of mental waves. We cut across the border in the afternoon. Sunburnt and surfed out, we made it back home just in time for Sunday crepes and more of that NW swell at the local Ventura points.
