As much as I love traveling and seeing new places, I always love coming home. I'm very blessed to get to call Southern, California my home. The weather is perfect and there are so many different types of places to visit. You can live at the beach and be up in the mountains in less then two hours. Its pretty rad. I reside in San Clemente, a small beach town that is becoming over populated. Although, in fall and winter people start to fade away, and the north swells start coming in. Some of the best surfs I’ve had are at home during these colder months.
In January 2019, snowboarder Mathieu Crepel and surfer Damien Castera, joined by photographer Greg Rabejac and lmmaker Pierre Frechou, traveled to the very northern tip of Norway for a boardriding expedition in the heart of the Arctic winter. In between snowy peaks and icy waves, they went deep into the polar night where solar winds meet Earth’s magnetic eld to create the fairy dance of the Aurora Borealis.
Nothing beats a morning sesh with friends. When the wind is still light and offshore, when most of the people are still sleeping, when waves are breaking with none spoiling their beauty. That’s he best moment of the day. And that’s the moment Leila Hurst and Karina Ronzuko chose to ride the sand bank.
