Time to Go Home
Pack your duffle bag with rancid clothes. Wrap fetid wetsuits in plastic bags. Tie 15 boards on top of the car for the last time. Head to the airport. Another guys’ surf trip is at an end.
We’ll always remember this trip differently. This trip was about getting waves and good times, but it was much more about giving.
I think Jeff Olson summed up the trip best in a short note he sent to the Baja3000 crew shortly after we returned to the US.
It was way more work than any other trip we have ever done, but the most fulfilling ever. I will never forget those kids at the labor camp. Their faces just lit up when they saw all the great stuff that we brought to them. I also would suggest that we put Elena and Aaron in our daily prayers. They are truly special people. Thanks to all my buddies for a very memorable, successful, and fun trip.
We are currently working on the Baja 3000 film, (which will be released in Fall of 2008), check out the trailer.
