We were driving at night and thus had already broken one of just two rules we made before crossing the southern border. It wasn’t really our fault. A long construction delay due to recent landslides held us up for over an hour. We passed white crosses on the winding downhill, marking those who’s brakes gave way or tequila got the best of them.
Thanks to all that made it to the Boardroom Show in Del Mar, and to our Bing Surf Shop re-opening party! Lot's of good friends came out to enjoy food by Bird's Eye Kitchen and beers by Saint Archer. We also premiered the movie trailer for our 60th Anniversary documentary series filmed and edited by Bryce Lowe White. Stay tuned for our event at SHAAC in San Clemente in July and our video premiere at Oceanside Surf Museum in August!
