weightlessness

For the last 6 weeks, I have been slowly starting to go a little crazy. A couple weeks ago I realized why.  Yes, it is hard to go without surfing for a while, but I have gone much longer than 6 weeks. But, I haven’t gone that long without feeling the sensation of floating weightless in the ocean. Without sounding too cheesy, it’s magical. The oceans salt water has a cleansing feeling you cant simulate anywhere else. I miss this too much by living in the city.

So to make it short, I had to get out of there for a bit. Flights from JFK to Aguadilla, Puerto Rico on Jet Blue are really cheap right now thanks to the recession, so I, along with some friends, took advantage. Here is the first day in PR. Some good surf should start arriving tomorrow and last through the weekend. Fingers are crossed. Click  for more…

There are some really crazy graveyards. We jumped a wall to take some flicks.

All the photos are taken with my new Fujifilm Instax (similar to Polaroids) . Then shot with a digital camera. really shitty but I will re-shoot or scan the photos and re-upload them when I get a chance.

The architecture in old San Juan was really cool.  And the place kinda sucks due to how catering it is to tourism in the way of disregarding their own culture. They have a Hard Rock Cafe….

Thankfully we were smart enough to not stay around there. Instead, we are in the Rincon area. It is real country like, warm water, hot 92degree air, and a bunch of the good surf spots are right around here.
