Finally, the opportunity has come. Southern California is the last region on my list surfing the Pacific Coast Highway, the West Coast (USA). I surfed Central California in Big Sur and up the Pacific Northwest (I wish I had my passport, I would’ve crossed into Vancouver, but it’s on the list for sure).
Passing Bixby Bridge, I continue south for another 10 miles on Highway 1 and what I find next is a surfer's paradise. 😱😍 Like Sonoma County's crags and arches, Monterey County offers breath taking views of coastline with open meadows. More rocks and in some breaks reef and/or sand breaks. We'll have to take a closer look. See Surfing Wine Country to learn what Northern California looks like in bio #mysurfblog #bigsur #montereycounty
Surf trips are a way to reflect and enjoy life. The importance of well being, to meditate with nature is a way for me to recharge and attack my goals when I am back in the office.
Productivity is only effective when you’re at 100%.
Now back to the fun, Southern California is the mecca for surf culture outside of Hawaii (respect for the Polynesians who invented surfing, of course). There are many countries aside from the United States where surf culture can be found such as Australia, Brazil (Sao Paulo/Rio de Janeiro), Indonesia (Bali), United Kingdom (Cornwall), Spain, Portugal, France, South Africa, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and many more. But Southern California is definitely the place that made surf culture famous. Remember the Beach Boys?
Completing my surf experience along the West Coast is a milestone, after this I plan to go international (which I have already done in Vietnam). More to come!
