This photo was titled, "Carlos Deep" sent to me by my friend Tobias way up in the stand up paddle wonderland of Northern Idaho. Believe it. The guy lives right up above lake Pend Oreille, Idaho's most magnificent lake. I'm putting it on my list, I'm going to paddle that one sometime.
Back to Carlos getting barreled. I ran into Toby way down south on my last run down to the tip of Baja. He came out of nowhere, looked a little like when I'd last seen him (probably fifteen or twenty years ago) and was still stoked on surfing- said his surfing was just as good as it'd ever been. I believed him. Each day he'd fire up his big ol' meated up Toyota Four Runner, load up his little family and go off searching.
Well, it looks like he found something. If you want to read more about what Toby was looking for (and finding), check out his new blog. It's a little bit mountain surfing (just check it out) a little bit surfing. I'm hoping he'll post up some pictures of the little home he built and the water wheel he designed to generate electricity from the stream that runs through his property. The blog's still being developed but I think it's going to be a good one. More surf photos Toby!
