Today was the second day of my trip to Puerto. I woke up at 6:00 with high hopes of scoring big offshore barrels, but unfortunately it was blown-out. Only one guy tried to surf and was unsuccessful in catching anything other than a violent beating.
I spent most of the day catching up with Greg and Rusty Long, Todd Glaser, Gavin Beschen, Dylan Graves, Dane Gudauskus, Derek Dunfee, Oscar Moncada, Jamie Sterling, Max Diaz, Kolo Rosenthal, Frank Solomon, Will Dillon, and more awesome humans. Puerto Escondido is such a gnarly and incredible wave that during the summer months just about every big wave surfer in the world passes through. There’s a ton of camaraderie in this town.
Took this picture of Derek Dunfee cooling off with his favorite pool toy.
