Postcard from Cali: Skunked beyond belief

Posted by: on July 10th, 2015

Hello Friends,

Just had to share my pain. After two weeks of flatness, I decide to go on a landscape photography expedition to a spot called Jalama. I figured it’d be totally blown out since I was heading up mid-afternoon and the place is a famous wind hole. I didn’t bother chucking a board and wettie in the car.

Well, as you can see from the snaps below, it was approaching as good as it gets. The offshore kelp beds and light winds ensured it was glassy. Sets were irregular, but when they turned up the 20 sec period meant they had lots of heft.

And, on top of everything else, there were only a dozen people in the water.


But, I have absolute confidence that everyone reading this could match me with a similar or worse tail of missed opportunity. That’s surfin’ I guess.

Have a good one!
