Any kind of travel allows for the landscape you know to slowly fade into the distance, while something else comes into view. The residue of your daily life slowly melts away as you walk or sail or glide towards whatever is waiting for you.
When we got married, my husband and I decided we would go to the Maldives for our 10-year anniversary. Surely, in 10 years we could afford such adventure and extravagance. Fast forward 11 years and we have three kids, another on the way, and the many financial and social burdens of modern life. The Maldives still sit there on the horizon and that’s ok. It’s always nice to have a proverbial carrot to chase.
Also, this: proximity still offers adventure.
We pack the kids and the boards, the many hotdog buns and stuffed animals, onto my parents’ boat and follow swells in the summer.
A few fantastic sips of cold beer, sliding across the water on melted wax, the pale and shiny fish below'; sometimes that’s all it takes to feel far away.

An Interview with Christian Marcher of Progressive Surf Academy
You’d be hard pressed to find someone more stoked on surfing than our friend and local ripper Christian Marcher. Big boards, small boards, soft tops, surf mats, hand planes, you name it and this guy rides them all at a very elite level. The best part about Christian is that he is always the nicest guy in the water and he pushes the boundaries of what you think is possible on a surfboard every time he paddles out.
With over 30 years of surfing experience, Christian has built Progressive Surf Academy into one of the most well-respected surf schools anywhere on the West Coast. He and his team use a very unique approach that dives deep into ocean safety, technique, and ethics in the lineup that you don’t see anywhere else. Christian delivers a premium surf experience for all ages and has been a part of the Bing family for a few years, so we sat down to chat and learn a bit more about the man and his love for the ocean.
