Last week we went up to Washington, to a zone I’ve not been before to Long Beach 30 mins north of Astoria.


Filled with classic RV’s including the Potato Bug, its a pretty amazing spot, very unique and very much a must visit spot.


We were posted up in the Silver Streak with a now standing up Lenny.

Inside we had two beds with 3 people after Lenny decided he didnt fit in his pack and play anymore.

Its called that because when they first tried discovering this part of the world, they couldn’t actually find it, hence the name.

Its quite apt when it rains for 48 hours straight.img_5356

There was so many kids, so much rain and quite a few beers for the parents.  Quite the mix.
The lodge..

Meanwhile between Oregon and Washington, take a look at the bridge… its HUGE.img_5399

On the way home, we went to surf at seaside, which was actually really fun.  I need to bring a bigger board though…img_5403

Bye you guys!

The north end of canon beach is one of the best kept secrets in plain sight.  Down the beach a mile you have hundreds of people like ants on the beach, yet up the way, you can find a perfect spot, secluded with some great surf.img_4784

Lenny approved of course!img_4806

and was practicing his standing/jumping/climbing, getting in the sand, and meeting his new friend oscar the dog, who i need to take some pictures of soon enough.img_4814

Have Friday!

Thats right, its a hat on the lake….


This weekend, we headed to find another gem of a lake.  It involved a pretty amazing drive up through Mt Hood.


Its one of those picture postcard spots not far from Portland.IMG_4616

Best Oregon Surfing Ever

by The Good Life on August 20, 2016

in America


I know.  I only seem to post about the coast these days, but honestly, its so damn beautiful, it makes it very hard not too.  This photo above, last sunday night was pretty fun.  Sani paddled in, and I decided on trying to surf the newly crowned Europeak, and quickly realized its pretty much just me out there.  Just embrace it….


So for the weekend, we surfed.  We surfed a lot.  5 times in 4 days.  Above Sani just putting on his demo out there on the dumpster diver.

In between surfs this was pretty much the lunch set up:


There is a lot to be said about having a cheeky wine.  Just gets you a little looser for an afternoon session out there, if you can fend off the sleep.


Yes, I know… its a bit of the company man, but the Shoe Dog book is amazing.  Definitely get a copy.  Like I say, if you can get through the afternoon wine, you can get some of this afterwards.


Still trying to get that bottom turn…. I just need to surf a bit more, but definitely feel like surfing a couple times a month out here has helped no end.


This is pretty much me every time though after surfing.  Trying to fix my back/hip and just feeling generally knackered.


We’ve had some all time sunsets out here recently.  This one, was one for the books.

We then went and found ourselves a little set up camp spot.  Pretty much all time set up.


Tent, Seats, more wine, scores, fire, and some sketchy people camping not far off.


This is one for the wall.

Thanks for the amazing times Oregon, as always delivering.  I am constantly amazed by the beauty of this place.

By the way, most of these photos are from Sani Alibabic, when he wasn’t charging the waves.
