A backpack and a duffel bag

Just got done packing for my two week surf trip. Feeling a little weird- this will be the first time that I don't bring any type of board with me- I feel slightly naked. My down south connection, and close friend, Tim Hatler at Palapas Ventana has been watching the numbers and swears that this next week will be a good one for hitting up a couple mysto-point breaks (we're talking islands in the Sea of Cortez here folks... surfed those? I didn't think so) so I'm going for it. Walking across the border Sunday morning with just a couple bags, a wad of pesos and an open mind. I do have a few boards (standup and prone) stashed down there but they're from three years, and several design changes, in the past- a little heavier and longer than I'm used to but you can't beat the convenience. Don't worry, I'm also bringing a camera and a laptop- so check back for updates of my barebones southern surf adventure.

Have fun and safe travels. Keep us updated!

As for my board I prefer the truster set up as well. But man there is a sweet spot on standing on that board. I'm still adjusting to how tipsy it is.

Still learning and loving it thou.

Can't wait to hear about your trip and photos.
