I had lunch yesterday with my big little brother and he was in a really good mood. So good that he played along when I whipped out my camera. I had the not so usual pleasure of snapping away and he not mugging at the camera. He probably won't thank me but I could not resist putting together this montage.
I've known since Dave was 7 years old and hanging ten on his skateboard that the kid would be a surfer. From San Diego's Ocean Beach to La Jolla, to Pismo and Maui and back, he has always had his surfboard ready to go.
Dave's pushing 46 now and a teacher in the Central Valley about as far as you can get from a wave and still be within driving distance for a day trip. But like clockwork, once a month he loads up his board, heads for the coast and hangs ten for all he's worth. Surf's UP, Bro.
