Mexico Surfing

I thought it about time to post some photos of the actual surfing in Mexico.  Right out front of the house, you had two waves a right and a left.

Couple waves for days.

Under the watchful eye of Lenny.

Joe trying to find some shade from the Club Med balcony.

Of course you always have the big guy watching over you.

I managed to get a few waves including this one.  Surfing is the most difficult sport to do I think, when you think you’re getting it, you see a picture a realise you are still a way off where you think you are.
We did manage to do an edit from the Drone which blew my mind how easy it is to use.  So good!  This was the DJI Mavic Pro.

Yes the waves were small the last day but such a great way to capture surfing.

The view from the terrace is all time.

Thank you Mexico!

Mexico – K38, Puerto Neuvo

On our California trip we decided to take a extra trip down to Mexico to Baja for a few days of surf, sun, Lobster, shopping and good times.

We were down at K38 just about half an hour past the border.  Theres so many spots to surf, places to eat all along the beach road its amazing.

Places like this for lunch make me happy.  Simple, friendly, cheap, amazing food and a mellow atmosphere.

Octopus Tacos.  Yes and yes!

Make sure to check it out at K38.

We also spent some time down at Puerto Neuvo a little fishing village known for its lobster.

All roads lead to the sea.

They have a good selection of food, drinks and loads of shopping.  More shopping than you can deal with.  Lenny and June just putting in that work.

Joe Carlino being the general legend he is.

More in the next post on where we stayed…

Mexico!

Luckily enough on a trip for Brian Greens birthday a while back I sneaked down to Mexico with him and the gang for a 30th birthday party.  So when we had to find a spot for a few nights near California for the family, I knew just the place, K38 down in Baja, Mexico.

Where the waves are rights, mellow and fun and the water is warmer than Oregon of course.

Theres a pretty special spot to watch from too.

For Lenny and his choice of baby sitters.

Out on the water, I still turn like a creaky old boat, but whatever theres some progress in there somewhere…

The wife is still as wonderful as ever..

and sunsets never get old…
