El Cap Excitement

This past weekend I celebrated my little brother’s birthday camping at El Capitan.  It is a tradition that we have been doing ever since I was in elementary school and we have a huge group of many families.  Preston, Jackson, and Riley Roach are only a few of the kids that go and all their…

Friday Funday

Last Friday was a pretty good day.  First off, last week was AP test week.  I had an AP test for AP Biology on Monday which was super stressful.  If you remember from my last post, almost the entire weekend before the exams, I spent studying with friends, and I hope it paid off.  I…

Saturday School to Surfing

This past weekend was really crazy.  I had so many plans taking up the entire weekend.  Saturday morning, I woke up around 8:00 and got dressed.  Preston Jackson, and Ben, had stayed at my house the past night, studying for the AP World History Final the next morning.  The past night we had read 300…

Some Small Surf

This past weekend I went on a bit of an adventure juts to find some surf-able waves.  Sunday morning I woke up around 10:00, to an amazing day outside.  I had done all my homework the day before and was eager to go find some surf.  The only problem was that there was almost no…

A Surf Weekend Away

This past weekend I had the SSS State Surf Contest in Oceanside for our SBHS Surf Team.  Friday, immediately when I got home from school, I started to pack the car with all kinds of boards, wetsuits, and food.  The car was packed and ready by 6:00, and when my dad got home, we left…

Santa Barbara High Saturday Surf Practice

This past weekend I went on another early morning surf session before the crack of dawn.  I am on the SBHS Surf Team and compete against other schools in surf contests.  I prefer to longboard in the contests, because that is the division in which I usually get the best result. Most of the time…

Sometimes You Just Need To Chill

This past weekend I did something that I usually don’t usually do very often.  I pretty much did nothing the entire weekend.  As you’ve probably learned from reading my past blog posts, I always hang out with my two best friends Preston and Jackson on the weekends.  Every weekend we do something, but this weekend…

Freedom On Wheels

A few weeks ago I finally got my drivers license.  I’ve been waiting to be able to drive myself around and not have to ask my parents for a ride every time I wanted to go somewhere.  The day of the test, I drove with my dad out to the Goleta DMV where I was…

Cabo Wabo

Last week was spring break and my family took a trip with a few of our friends to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  We have been coming to Mexico ever since I was born, but our friends have just recently started to come on the trip.  Usually, the travel is easy and chill, but this time…

Clear Water Waves

On Saturday this past weekend I went on a paddle with Preston and my little brother from Hendry’s to Leadbetter beach.  Paddle boarding is something that is super fun to do when the surf is flat.   It’s easy to catch even the smallest waves on a stand-up.  I am pretty good at it because…

Bump, Set, Spike

This past weekend, I went to East Beach to play beach volleyball with my friend and his family.  I spent the night at Preston’s house and woke up Sunday morning super tired, not realizing that it was actually and hour later than it felt.  Preston’s parents came in and told us that we were going…

Spearfishin’ Saturday

On Saturday I went spearfishing with Preston.  If you haven’t noticed pretty much everything I do on the weekends, whether it be surfing, hiking, snowboarding, playing soccer, I always do it with Preston and Jackson.  I woke up around 10:00, which was nice because I don’t usually get to sleep in.  It took me awhile…
