Dates have been confirmed.. As of now, I have 1 taker for the trip from Expedition Portal, he is driving a DECKED OUT UNI-MOG. Dates are as follows: Leaving San Diego (with surfboards in hand) May 3rd and returning May24th. If you want to come for just a week, and bail early, that is fine. But these are the dates...

MAY 3rd to MAY 24th

You've got to be kidding Gun? You surf? I grew up in LA and San Diego. In fact, I and five of my friends lived in a house in Rosarita Beach for about a year and a half after we graduated college. I surfed and scuba dived my whole life until I moved inland in 1996. I've done way more than my share of surfari's down the Baja Peninsula. Awesome to see you doing this. Sadly, I now live far from the ocean and any surfing as I've gravitated to being a rancher/team roper/hunter. But I still hold a spot in my heart for the ocean and surfing. I've been to Fiji, Costa Rica, and other places on surf trips. I'm too fat to lay on the board and paddle now! Ah to be young again! LOL

P.S. My parent's and other family still live in San Diego so I am there several times a year!

You will need to post lot's of pics of this trip!!

Yes Sir. Been Surfing all my life. Grew up on the Outer Bank of N.C. and was up on a board at 6 years old with my Dad. I too have been to Costa Rica (Jaco, Quepos) for the epic surf along the rim. My college buddies and I go every year. I am 6'4" and built like a soldier weighing in at 245 So it is longboards for me in ALL conditions LOL.. Living in FLorida, we go surfing all the time, My son is 15 and is an AVID surfer, He nailed honor roll all year, and this trip to the Baja for a month is his reward (and my reward for still being alive) We are so stoked to be going to surf the Baja, we both have been doing a ton of reading and have mapped out all of the killer surf spots along the way. I could never move away from the beach (I can visit the mountains, but my life is the ocean) IT IS MY CHURCH... WE always go surfing on Sunday with kids and with my friends, We call it "going to Church"

I have not been to Fiji, but it is on my list of things to do. We love San Diego!!!! If I was not married, I would live in San Diego:):):):):)

So cool! Congratulations and kudos to your son! Your trip to Baja is such a kewl reward. You must be a proud Papa! I used to say the same thing about being a "waterman" and never leaving the ocean. But eventually I just couldn't handle all the people on the coastlines. Also I became an avid (addicted) hunter and lover of forests and tundra. Hence my eventually working my way away from the coast. That said, I still have several friends in san Diego and I keep three boards and a couple wetsuits in his garage for when I'm down there. I'm only 5'11" but weigh 250, so like you, I am pretty much relegated to longboards now. No more 10'+ Swami's or Blacks for me. I would drown now. LOL

Thanks Scott. One of the reasons I left my truck in San Diego (instead of driving it back to Florida) was to go see the KOH event (done:)) and then hit the Baja with the Surfboards for a month with my son, living out of this damn dodge. Grew up on the OBX of NC for the summers... I am 6'4" and 240 pounds so I roll with my 9'8" broad nose all the time.. Getting ready to mail (UPS) the boards this week to San D so that I have them for the trip.. My son is bringing his 5'11" fish (good all around sweater:) we are both pumped up.. Leaving out of here in 17 days, and getting super stoked about it..... Hooking up with 3 other expo type rigs in San D on the 24th and headed for the border from there.. I need to figure out a way to Sell my Engineering Firm in Orlando and Virginia, and spend my summers surfing the Pacific, then spending my winters in Florida. IN A PERFECT WORLD LOLOLOL I am 36 years old, so I still have to pay some dues before I retire:):)
