smiles for miles at #flurofriday ! tomorrow @onewaveisallittakes is celebrating 4 years of freeing the funk with friendship and salt water therapy. 62 beach communities in 14 countries are surfing together in ridiculous neon outfits to raise mental health awareness. i'm out of town (booo) but everyone should go because catching a party wave with new friends is an epic way to start your day. it's onnn 7am venice breakwater, msg me if ya want more info! ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’™

a hazy memory from last summer in joshua tree. our crew drank a bottle of mezcal and a case of PBR and went for a 3am "hike& #34; . kellan decided to climb this tree and came down covered in scratches. eventually we all found our way back to the house and everyone fell asleep under the stars to the smell of lingering smoke and the sound of scott playing leonard cohen on an out of tune guitar. no mountain lion sightings were reported.

7am on venice beach, surrounded by the stillness of the morning marine layer. the palm tree lined streets of my neighborhood are engulfed in haze and the boardwalk looks like a road to nowhere. a tiny figurine enclosed inside a murky snow globe from an overpriced gift shop, listening to the sound of the waves getting swallowed up by the heaviness of the humidity. half asleep, my senses open up as the sun begins to burn a hole in the fog.
