2013. july. the last morning of this trip. puerto escondido. i really had no intention on surfing this morning, nor did most surveying the line just after sunrise. there were few takers. this cat walked down to the beach, ran back for his board, returning minutes later. he sat in this spot for over an hour watching 20′ + faces shift all around the sand banks. a few paddled out down at the circling point, sat out the back for long spells, only to find themselves swimming seconds later. they look pretty, but we all know those can deceive.
