But I like the way John Mayer put it in his new album, "Love ain't a thing, Love is a verb". Love in action is why we all took this trip to El Salvador. Our Love for the Pacific and the waves she shares with us day in and day out. But most importantly, Love that was triumphant, crossing thousands of miles, crossing borders and nationalities and bureaucracy and the bullshit that life throws at us. We came to be part of the union between not one of, but the best man I know, and one of my dearest friends, Manav and his beautiful wife, Ruth's wedding. When you witness love come together like we did, you know it exists and it is out there for every one of us.
All teary eyed and heart felt, lets get back to surfing!

I walked over with the Japanese Charger to Punta Roca, the most famous wave in El Salvador. We saw locals just charging triple over head, barreling waves. I could feel the ground rumble as sets came through. It was pretty awesome. Pictures say a thousand words. Check it!

Here is a video I made from this trip, full of great memories:
I've been to other destination weddings, but this trip was hands down, one of the best trips I have ever been on and the BEST wedding that I have ever been part of. But it wasn't just the country, the town or the surf. It was the people that I shared it with. All the folks that made the trip are the most warmest, good hearted people that I have ever met. And the the folks that I do know (Furry, Panama Red, Crazy E, Ton-G and Manav = A.K.A Kiwi Hippies) have already been spoken for and are Ohana for life. But being the friends of Manav, we are just a reflection of his goodness and love. And that's what it's all about. Love.
Now back to texting with Furry. We keep trying to relive the last five days of Epicness.
