San Francisco: A Surf at the Confluence of City and Sea

It is a pleasure to greet the morning with a buzzing haze of lethargic excitement, a physical self grounded by the weight of the past and a non-physical self drifting with expectations of the future.  


The cosmic, city sunrise shines it’s cold light on a quintessential Fall morning in San Francisco. With winds out of the east-northeast and a desolate dawn, the beach dunes seem more like the moon than the shoreline of a thriving metropolitan area.


It’s a tranquil place to seamlessly engage your attention to the present.

Sincere propulsion from a dying swell’s final seconds after a lifetime of traveling across the Earth offers a harmonious relationship to tango in the now. These interactions provide a rare high as you oscillate around the waveform’s turbulent power center with an involved interaction that can only be engaged by a convex bottom contour.



The whole world melts away when this type of presence encapsulates you, bliss beyond duality, as you effortlessly glide on your fiberglass magic carpet, teeming with a buzz of creative energy, lightness, fullness, centered.
