Bucket Listing in the California Surf

5 Mar

I’ve been spending my time lately just hanging out with good friends, family and working on getting physically stronger/in better shape.  It’s so important for the mind and body to be taking care of yourself and working out.  It’s been so helpful being surrounded by people who are up for anything and that I just enjoy their company.  My good friend, Lesly, has been such a wonderful new friend in my life!  We go and try a new restaurant once a week and share a love for board sports.  It’s been on my bucket list to surf in CA because I only have surfed in Hawaii when I go see my family about once a year.  It’s something that I’ve always found incredibly peaceful and something that I had wished I had more access to.  Lesly has her own board and wetsuit and knows the waters in Northern California well.  It’s very important to respect the water and know what you are getting yourself into.

With the weather really warming up this weekend (73 degrees and no wind), we hit Pacifica on Saturday for a nice long boarding session.  I had a blast with her and can’t wait to do it again soon!

We had less than half mile to go so we just shoved the boards in the back of Lesly’s car haha!

Just taking the Ferrari to the beach.

Pacifica is a great place to enjoy the ocean.  The swell was very small this weekend which was great for me and it was very relaxing.  There is also a Taco Bell right on the beach to re-fuel after surfing 🙂  That’s not part of my getting fit routine but it definitely screams your name after paddling for a few hours.  Happy Monday everybody!

    I love Pacifica, I always go to the next beach south (I don’t worry about names, just waves) You have to driving around that cliff (not sure if the tunnel is finished yet) that is so freaky in heavy fog.

    Surfing is a wonderful workout but that feeling you get after a long day of surfing keeps me grounded….

    I also know that taco bell

      Ooo that’s good to know!! There are so many beaches around there, we just went for the closest since we packed down the subaru so that we could barely see out the windows 🙂
