Miami, Florida

September is a volatile month in the deep south of America. The water is warm and the air is torridly humid. These conditions are perfect for tropical depressions and hurricanes so we stayed a few more days in New Orleans as we closely watched Hurricane ... Read more >

So, our first night back in the U.S.A. was in a small town named after my dad – Raymondville, Texas.   We basically stopped there because we had already been driving for 9 hours and were pretty tired after crossing the border.   We paid far ... Read more >

Grand Canyon

Driving, driving and more driving. The Grand Canyon isn't exactly around the corner from Vegas.5 and a half hours of boringness but it is freeway the whole way. We got in at around 7 and managed to catch our first look into the canyon as the sun was low ... Read more >

Las Vegas

We left San Francisco and drove down to Santa Barbara in search of some waves but again, we were disappointed. This seems to be the trend in America. There is some really good point break set ups but it was windy and practically flat so we booked 2 nights ... Read more >

Santa Cruz

The Santa Cruz surf scene in a word- crowded. The first good spot is Pleasure point which is a series of patchy reef breaks that make up a long point. Its sort of like the Pass in Byron but nowhere near as good. Its primarily a longboard wave ... Read more >

Northern California & San Francisco

USA | Saturday, 28 May 2011 | Views [115]

The drive through the northern coast of California was fairly uneventful.  Having avoided a speeding fine for a warning instead, we were relieved and adamant about sticking to the speed limit. We detoured slightly off highway 101 for the spectacular ... Read more >

Portland, Mt Hood & First Surf

Cruising into Portland, no map, came to a massive spaghetti junction and of course took the wrong road and ended up....somewhere. Enter the first u-turn of the trip. We eventually found the hostel which was in the Hawthorne District. The area was real ... Read more >

Anyone who has been to America knows that when you attempt to cross the border they are going to ask you a million questions, finger print you, photos and just generally shake you down. So i was just a little nervous heading into the border crossing. ... Read more >
