Here's a couple more photos from down south...

I hear you. It may seem like I'm holding out on the full report- but I'm not. I'm just trying to get back to normal. And I'll tell you what's crazy- I'm seeing stand up paddle everywhere around here. And the stand up paddle surf lessons are going nuts- I'm booked everyday!

I'm ruminating about how I'm going to report on this one. I'm thinking "vignette" which isn't something you put on a salad. Maybe a story in captions... something like that. Whatever. Here's a couple more shots:

Another overview of the point.
I've said it before- this is not the main event wave in the area- but it makes a hell of a back up wave.

You know the story right? On the good days, no surfer worth his flip flops was going to sit around and shoot vid or photos, so the best days went undocumented. Out of my fourteen days down there I'd say that two were in the, "dude, are you kidding me about what we're scoring right now?" category and eight were in the, "this would be all-time at home" ranking.

Pack it in. Getting the car you ordered is a crap shoot. We reserved a van a year ahead of the trip- we ended up with a Durango for a couple days and the van for the remainder. Be flexible, things change in Mexico.

You step off the plane
and the warm, wet, towel hits you hard. It's the tropics, man. Slow down, hydrate and smile. Here's Marcos doing all three.
