Here are some things that happened on the trip. 7 large people 9 surfboards one un-roadtested 3,000 dollar van. Stopped in Encinitas for plantain burritos. Crossed the border late afternoon and suited up as soon as we got to Gaviotas. Got yelled at for taking wine glasses down to beach. 4-7 ft swell. House was decorated inside almost entirely of white marble.

Got delicious tacos at K23 taco surf. Had delicious seafood and margaritas in puerto Nuevo, sat next to the possible future mayor of Baja at a little restaurant there with ivy covered windows. Did some barefoot bouldering while waiting for the tide to be right. Lots of home cooked meals.

The highway one between the border and Gaviotas was beautiful and the coastline was rugged, big cliffs and turquoise and white water. Guys sitting in the beds of pick up trucks in Mexico laughed at the 55mph top speed of the van as they sped by.
