I’ve seen a certain quote circulating around a lot lately. I don’t know who said it, but it is a 100% certified, amazing truth. “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.”

Yes, yes it is. Think back on some of your best stories, memories, laughs, pictures…my bet, is the majority of them have something to do with travel. Whether it was a weekend road trip or three weeks in South Africa, getting out and seeing what this big ‘ol amazing world has to offer is one of the more amazing and exhilarating things you can do.

If your idea of travel happens to involve a board that incurs a rather hefty baggage fee, well then let’s say that type of travel hits the jackpot. Surf trips get you in the water, give you a ton of exercise, and are great for your mental and physical health. Yes, even if there is an obnoxious wave hog in your group. Or a boat of them following you wherever you go.

So, my theory is this: if travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer, well then, a surf trip is like winning the lotto.

…which is always a great excuse to go on one.

Gabe Clement and JJ with the "Inspiration LA" one-off tee that was printed during the event.

SWELL: Hey JJ, thanks for taking some time to talk to us. “Inspiration LA” is pretty awesome and somewhat overwhelming for me, It’s my first year at the event. Have you been to the event before this year? How has your experience been so far?

JJ: I’ve been coming to the event since it started really, I was invited by Rin Tanaka. One of my friends, Brian Bent, was featured in a book that Rin published, and I think thats how I met him. It’s been the best event so far, definitely the best turnout. It’s something I wouldn’t miss. it’s something where I’m like “Inspiration is coming up! when is it? where is it?” type thing. (more…)

Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
When taking photos of a person underwater, tell your model not to hold back on expressiveness! Sometimes they may feel goofy doing a certain pose, but the more exaggerated the motion, the more dramatic the photo will turn out.
