“Late May surf trip with friends to deepest mainland Mexico. My favorite place on earth to put everything else aside and spend 6+ hours in the water every day!”

Surfing with friends in Mexico, doesn’t get any better than that.

No parking lots on the beach here or even roads for that matter. You drive your 4WD truck along on the beach and find a spot in the sand right in front of the waves, enjoy.

I went to this region for the first time in 2009 with my friend Mark Arico. By our next trip in 2010 he had purchased this corner beach lot with plans to build a surf camp. I took a portrait of Mark at the corner of the lot when it was nothing but sand and cactus. Its been amazing to watch him fulfill his dream and build an amazing camp.
