eh - the ultimate wave in the region!

Salut ZZZZZZZ - in mexico they say 'mi casa es su casa'. Do I need to translate? It means 'My house is your house'. They say this because they know that in life you always get more of that which you give. Comprende? I live and surf in your area, and cut my teeth on all the SoCal spots you could only dream of surfing. Break out of your shell, travel a bit of the world, and you too, will learn how to give. Then teach your friends, Peace out, Dude!
