Desperate need for more of this right now. Soon as van gets back and in order...I gone. "We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us"

Van is back in the shop for 3rd time in 3 months. This time for new brakes, new front all terrain tires and alignment issues. Excited to get her back and get moved back in and on the road with Bailey girl! Miss the simplicity of being on the road. Eat, drive, sleep, surf...not necessarily in that order.

This wave used to be a dangerous lowhead dam that took several lives and now it's one of the best river waves in the midwest that is completely safe as long as a life jacket is being worn.
I know when people think of surfing, Dayton Ohio isnt really what comes to mind. But wanted to show that surfing is here and the river surfing community is growing fast!

Did I mention that I love my life?

Was planning on taking a rest day and not surfing but level came back up a bit and was having an off day, feeling down, and overwhelmed. Surfing is always the best cure. Plus lil cooler out and gave me the chance to use my new bodyglove spring suit.

Dayton wave level has been incredible for the last 2 days with glassy face to the wave. Surfed a total of about 12 hours over the last 2 days. Legs are just jello today.

What am I doing with my life?

Im just seeing what all I can get away with! "Life is ridiculous. We have no freaking idea what we're even doing here spinning around on this globe in the middle of this solar system with who-the-hell knows what out there beyond it. Making a big fat deal out of anything is absurd. Take the pressure off and get back on the adventure!" -Jen Sincero

I havent surfed in about a week and Ive been glued to a computer screen non stop. That being said, cant wait for Gauley season. Looking to book a campsite to post up in the van for the season and maybe hitch some rides to go surf at the "you know where" spot that requires 4 wheel drive. Any locals with suggestions?

Been a fun 2 days of surfing the downtown dayton wave, with Sunday having about 12 other surfers there with me which is the largest group we've had there at one time. Surf scene here is growing fast!!!! Excited to get some rain though and get a bit higher levels. Thanks to @jennaamelia_ for capturing these shots 📷🤘 #badfishsup #surfdayton #daytonsurf #badfishsk8 #bodyglove #surf #riversurf #riversurfing #landlockedsurfing #riverbreakmag #surfohio #ohiosurf #daytoninspires

You know what I love about river surfing that many overlook? Doesn't matter if you've been surfing 20 years or its your first day, you get your turn on the wave just like everyone else. In a crowded ocean lineup, you have to fight for every wave, but in the river, everyone is equal.
If you show up to a new wave, ask the locals for tips, the river ettiquite there on how the lineup works, be respectful, and you'll make some awesome friends. Every wave, manmade or natural is gonna be different, own set of rules and beta. Be open to it and welcome the change! 📷: @bodhiharrison
