Summer, Waves & Surfing

Huntington Beach, CA Pier

this little guy was walking with his grandma
& wasn't too sure about the crab he found!

always so much to see at the beach

have to stretch...before surfing

Newport Beach, CA

While Jullien was here visiting/recuperating, he was finally healed up enough to go surfing. Unfortunately, the waves weren't cooperating, but when you're a surfer, you learn to make due...which is exactly what he did on this day. It took us a few stops (Newport Beach first & then finally ending up back where we started in Huntington Beach.)

Normally he likes to avoid the pier crowd & head down to the cliffs, but when the waves are small, the pier usually has the largest he battled the line-up (tons of surfers paddling for prime position) and caught a few.

Welcome to summer surfing in Southern California!

I am afraid of water but my sister took me and the kids to the ocean one time and I actually got brave and waded on the very edge. Fun for those that like to surf and all that goes with it.
