Recipe: Pumpkin Protein Cups

Fall is one of my most favorite times of the year! Not only does California get perfectly groomed waves combed by off-shore conditions, but there are also a plethora of yummy recipes to explore. I generally try to lean towards the healthier version of the many Fall baked goods, specifically ones that are simple. It’s…

Recipe: Pumpkin Ice Cream

It’s officially fall! …Right? Despite the fact that where I live the air temp still pushes towards the triple digits, I find myself in the fall mood. Somehow soups and casseroles or anything involving additional heat just doesn’t feel right…literally. Though the closest thing we have to a leaf color change is due to California’s…

Raw (and yummy) Chocolate Avocado Pie

Ok, I know what most of you are probably thinking… “Umm chocolate-avocado-what?” And that’s okay because I thought the same thing when I discovered this tasty treat while casually browsing the menu at the Pura Vida health food store in Todos Santos, Baja.

Product Review: COR Surf’s Excursion Waterproof Travel Pack

If it’s not obvious already, I LOVE to surf Trestles…along with thousands of other folks from in and out of town. It’s not just about the wave, tho.

During the cooler months, we often forget ┬áthe sun is still strong enough to eventually turn our cute mugs into a texture reminiscent…

She’s not your average C.E.O. Sage Offutt sports ponytails and loves to rock out to Sheppard’s “Geronimo” with her besty as much as possible. But still–this pre-teen means business…#forreal While most 12 year old girls spend their spring break and summer vacations soaking up the sun, listening to tunes or developing summer crushes, Sage Offutt…

Patrolling the Dawn, Vol. 2

February 25, 2016 // Dana Point, California // Off-shore winds lightly rattled my windows while crawling out of bed and rubbing my puffy eyes to the sound of a 5:30 a.m. alarm. My board was already tucked in my car the night before, just needed to throw my wetsuit in the trunk, in case I…

Patrolling the Dawn

Let’s get one thing straight: I am not a morning person. I never have been and never will be. You know that classical music song by Rossini? Of course ya do! Well, as beautiful as the song is, it will never be taken seriously by myself. <Insert savvy pun about men my age here> I…
