The Family That Surfs Together...

Monday, October 29, 2012


... has a whole lot a fun together!

Inspired by our viewing of Chasing Mavericks over the weekend, I'm going to let you all in on a little secret; my boys aren't the only surfers in the family. Back in the day, I used to be on our local surf team, and after my husband and I discovered our shared love of the sport (it's actually what got us interested in each other in the fist place) we used to take surf trips together at least twice a year. After I became pregnant with the LM, I was pretty much relegated to sand castle duty, but this summer I was able to make my way back in to the water, and I have to say it felt really good! Until Gray is able to paddle out with the rest of us, I'm afraid that I will still be stationed on the beach, but I'm hoping soon we will be able to be one of those families who travels the world, seeking out the endless summer. I said this to my husband, after the movie, and he replied, "I kind of thought we already were." Damn, I hate it when he's right ;)

Here is our little tribe in action.

The LM killing it...





... and the next generation.


Hang loose!

Also, have you heard of The Goodwin Project? It's the family we all (kinda) dream to be. I recognized the Mom from my favorite surf DVD, Singlefin: Yellow. Dayze Shane, maybe now Dazye Goodwin? Anyway, it's about her and her family (two little ones) that packed up and traveled the world, filming a documentary. The pictures are beautiful, and I just can't even wrap my head around doing what they did. But there was lots of surfing involved. http://thegoodwinproject.com/

LOL, that's the family I linked too. I'm obsessed and followed them on their journey. I could never do it with two kids, but loved living through them!!!

That is so neat! It's so great when a mom gets to let our her inner rock star :)
