I remember reading stories about Windansea in the Surfer's Journal. A very iconic place in the surf culture and history: the longboards, the shack, Butch, the Windansea Surf Club... It goes way back in our sport history. The day was beautiful and I decided to take the afternoon off. I had few hours in front of me and wanted to go to a new place. I headed to Mission Beach and La Jolla. The place is gorgeous: lots of coves, rocky shores, small sandy beaches and very pretty neighborhood. When I first turned left towards the ocean, I ended up in front of the break at Windansea! Didn't even know it was that street. Having a quick look while driving past, I saw some guys were paddling for a wave, one goes right, the other left... that's it, I'm in! Again, the swell is nothing big but the spot had some good rides to offer. Just being there for the first time in such a cool place made it all. Went for two sessions, took pictures in between and enjoyed the vibe on the beach...

3 thumbs up!

GM: Man, I'm so lucky! Usually my job consist to spend weeks stuck on a boat surveying offshore. This time I'm in an awesome place based on land where I can surf! So I try to make the most of it! :) Chris: Gonna be here for another 3 weeks.
