California Love: Part III

| posted on April 01, 2013

Editor’s Note: Rob Gilley recently wrote a piece about the Golden State’s oft-overlooked place among the world’s best surf destinations. Sure, it might get crowded and occasionally flat in certain places, but if you know where to look and when, it can make for an incredible surf trip. To read Gilley’s piece, click here, or check out the third installment of his California photo series below.

    Rob — could you please post all the photos from that day at El Cap? I have seen at least two (three?) photos you’ve released from that same session with the foreground of grass over the years… PLEASE!!!

  • Long dong

    The article doesn’t name spots for good reason. So why should you idiots?

  • Some Guy

    Oh yeah, long dong-key…bc C Street, El Cap, the Con and Lane are such secret spots!

    The Captan was a fun morning session only a few locs out, with my dog Hazard watching me surf. The SE wind came in later and totally blew it out right when the crowds started showing up. If you go respect the land, the locs and the water.

    Socal all the way up to Santa Cruz? not knocking the validity of California’s waves, but most peoples normal surf trips don’t span 500 miles of populated coastline. a bit of a stretch.
