It’s that time again.
The winter swells start to dry up and we look to the back country for our diversions.

Due to another drought year, our spring was short but sweet.

There’s still the occasional wind swell here and there.
When there is, Bobby Morris and Trevor Scoggins are usually on it,

Keep in mind, these guys always make it look better than it was….

Less wind swell than usual this year, or at least it seemed like it.
Maybe we just aren’t looking as hard for it.

We finally figured out how Bobby does all these crazy things.

His magic surfboard does tricks with or without him….

Meanwhile, on the backside of the mountains, the water dwindles…

But just like a wind swell, the harder you look, the more you might find.

These guys were stoked to find something besides salt water to frolic in.

The native flora was in its full summer bloom.

We also found a little baby Horny Toad. You don’t these guys much anymore…

So once again, we are thankful for where we live.
There’s always some fun to be had if you go look for it.
