MEXICO | Wednesday, 22 Jun 2011 | Views [378]

When we left Las Vegas for the second time, heading to Los Angeles and then San Diego, D had a bit of a meltdown checking the finances.  So, we decided not to make a big deal out of L.A., we skipped the Hollywood sign, the walk of Fame, and the ... Read more >

Grand Canyon

USA | Tuesday, 7 Jun 2011 | Views [368]

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 >

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 [333]

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 >

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 >

The Chief

Last Friday we climbed/ hiked up to the top of the Chief. The Chief is a vertical cliff face that stands proud above the town of Squamish, between Vancouver and Whistler. It took us about an hour an a half to get to the top but we were cruising, checking ... Read more >

Hanging out

CANADA | Sunday, 10 Apr 2011 | Views [446] | Video

We have pretty much just been hanging out at the Belanger mansion and catching up with friends for dinners etc, but there has been so much snow lately it has been unbelievable. Locals are saying it is one of the best snow seasons in 15 years. If you ... Read more >


Road Trip

So we headed out on the road after hastily packing the van who we call Astroboy, taking highway 1 towards our first destination.  A bright beautiful Tuesday afternoon in spring and we were looking for snow.  The drive to Hope was smooth and fast, the ... Read more >
