photography and journal by Jack Bark

To escape the crowds of Southern California and search for empty waves, my buddy Dave Boehne and I drove down to Mexico and set of in search for waves. We loaded our paddle boards up with enough camping gear, food, and equipment for a 3 to 5 day trip, camping out on the Islands of Todos Santos, about 5 miles off the coast of Ensenada. The first day started off so fogged in, that it took us almost 6 hours to paddle across the 5 mile channel, that should have taken 1 hour. Once we reached the islands though, we knew it was so worth it as we came across an empty peak to surf, offering up overhead waves with nobody around.The rest of the trip consisted of surfing this wave by ourselves, spear fishing, and paddling around the small islands through caves, chasing seals and trying to get into every nook. Overall ,the trip opened out eyes to what is out there with a little exploring and sense of adventure.
