This trip was all about finding a healthier peace of mind. It wasn’t exactly an escape from the grind, but more of a redirection. Have you ever felt like you were on the brink of a pivotal life change but had no control over where the cards were going to fall? I suppose this trip was one of the few things I could actually control. So… I loaded the boards up and brought a few cameras out to the west coast in an attempt to find new inspiration. I found a few friends, surfed a couple waves and gained a little healthier perspective for the road ahead.
