Some of you may now already, but I'm headed back to the mountains. Florida has been good to me. I worked at a great surf shop with some amazing people. Got closer to my family here in the Sunshine state and got better acquainted with the ocean, although we still have a long way to go. I'm not sure if I'll ever feel as comfortable in the ocean as I do in the river but I respect it immensely and can't wait for another chance to get lost in it's vastness and power.
I'll be hitting the road tomorrow morning with Natali Zollinger and Heidi Ho in the Sprinter van. In the spirit of road tripping and moving onto the next chapter of my life, this video and song couldn't be more appropriate. It's a clip from the surf film 'A Broke Down Melody'. One of my favorite quotes "nothing ever stays the same. You can’t build fences around life. It’s just an ongoing process. All you’ve got to do is keep paddling…simple"
