In fact every single human body is more than rad. It’s remarkable, and capable of soooooo many incredible things. Case in point: Freedivers that can hold their breath for 5 minutes, marathon runners, rock climbers, powerlifters, hip hop dancers, Kobayashi, and of course, surfers. But, even non-pro or extreme athletes (ordinary joe’s like myself) are cable of amazing things. Another case in point: Beating personal bests in a timed mile, hiking a 14’er, completing a triathlon, or rehabbing from a life altering injury to being better than before.
And those are just a few examples off the top of my head. (more…)Thank you for visiting the Swell blog. Visit us on www.facebook.com/swell for more exclusive fan offers, giveaways and more.

This week’s open road adventure took me to a secluded beach in Laguna. There is nothing better than a little fall weather to provide crisp air, warm sun, and gorgeous, empty beaches. As much fun as summer is I prefer the quietness that comes with the cooler weather. As the vacationers have gone home and school and work take priority in our daily schedules, it is always good to make time to get down to the beach.

Getting the Shot: When you’re shooting a wave in the distance and there is a nice bluff behind it like this, you want to compose the shot with the wave on the bottom third of the frame and the bluff taking up the top two-thirds.
Surfer: Michael Dunphy
Camera: Canon 7D
