Drew Charging Puerto Escondido (photo-Angelo Cordero)
Drew just got some great tubes down in Puerto Escondido, The Mexican Pipeline! He got a wild hair & decided to enter into a stand up paddleboard contest. To check the scores, click on Duane DeSoto’s blog.
Puerto is on the southern Pacific coast of Mexico in the state of Oaxaca – about 220 miles south of Acapulco. Playa Zicatela is known for it’s huge barrels — Drew’s always loved those Puerto barrels….
We were flying home Monday from Myrtle Beach. Our first flight was 6 hours late, so we missed our connecting flight to LAX in Newark. Continental guy “Christopher” says “oh, we can’t get you out of Newark until Wednesday!”
And then proceeded to tell us that Continentals “only obligation to us is to get passengers from point A to point B safely” and not to do anything else, like, say, get us a place to sleep?
Oh, but our LUGGAGE made it to LA on Monday. So, we had to wear the same clothes for a few days…..BUT WE MADE THE BEST OF IT IN REGULAR BROPHY STYLE – WE rented a car, drove to Michael Jordan’s house in Rumsen, and spent the next day in N.Y. City! (more…)
This has got to be our best day this summer! We left Hobcaw to go Kyaking in the North Inlet to a desolate barrier island called North Island.
Scott and Deanna Benston took us on this trip. They have these excursions you can sign up for through Surf the Earth. There’s usually a waiting list – now I know why! It’s amazing, the scenery, the wildlife, the experience.
