“My first trip to Abreojos was the summer of 1970. The place was magical. I returned many times after and even spent my honeymoon there in sept. of 1978. I still spend a lot of time in Baja Sur, mainly on the East Cape. I'm almost 60 yrs. old but still surfing as much as I can. Follow your heart and not your head and surf till you can't paddle out any more! Buena suerte y vaya con dios.”
