The cold weather, water and the wavering wave conditions rolling in on this particular afternoon sure didn’t stop us from paddling out. When your friend who basically ran a marathon down a mountain the day prior and three others ran a marathon the day of just a few miles down from this break still had the drive to paddle out, their definitely was no excuse to not go for a surf. We call them elite, they say “ehh.” ☺️⁠

Miss you guys! Have a good weekend and Happy #alohafriday

Hope everyone is have a great Saturday! This was from last year just a few months after picking up a camera for the first time! It’s been a learning experience and everyday I seem to figure out one more thing or see that one object differently then I did before! Can’t wait to look back after 5 to 10 years behind the camera, and to see all the wonderful places it has taken me! #visitventura #venturapier #downtownventura #showcaseventura #vccvibes #vibesfromthe805 #sunrise #landscapephotography #venturacalifornia #sanbuenaventura #skyreflection #surferspointventura #sunriselover #rediscovercalifornia #visitcalifornia #sunrise_sunset_photogroup #insta_sky_reflection #explorecalifornia #futureexploration #californiasunrise #ourgoldenstate
