Gold coast vibes ~ @rvcasurf
Wow, times are tough. Every day is un certain. Physically, emotionally, financially… it all really. I find peoples emotions are heightened in good ways and bad. Projection of belief of what you should do, shouldn’t be, how to now be or act as person given the change.. what’s ok or what’s not. Its a lot to take in. I also feel when people are anxious they are easily triggered. Felt that first hand. Isnt it hard to live with yourself with in limits that make you question and reassess all that your used too and act out of? So i get that. Feel that, hear that.
For me personally being in Australia those rules have varied in seriousness the last two weeks. Ive been adapting the best I’ve been able to and two things keep coming to mind. Opportunity and words. Opportunity to chose not only in taking a positive perspective but also how each encounter with people or family really matters and mostly their words. Words right now seem the most important. They give life and light or they cause fear and angst. Im not old enough to give or have some defining philosophy for the world, but what I do know is a hopeful heart, resilient faith in change and the commitment to wake up every day and try at life is what will bring those every day small bits of joy to keep at it. Keep evolving and keep pressing forward. ...this photo was taken before the crisis hit a couple weeks ago. I spent a really cool night with my community in ventura, eating pizza, giving away my boards, thanking my sponsors and enjoying the little bits of sweet time spent. This is Emerson, she’s 7 and the cutest little sweet pea. This board was meant for her. I can only think now in this time, she’ll have it in her room dreaming of the day she can rip on it and all the fun its going to allow her to have! Also the flowers i drew reminded me of her so much..when she walked through the door it chose her. I was just the messenger. We dont know what tomorrow holds, but im thinking there must be a little bit specialness in this all and i hope you guys pass that feeling along. Photos - @williekessel
Beach day in @rvca_womens
May as well get cozy… @rvca_womens x @slowtide blanket with art by one of my favorites @johanna.olk
Making the most of this extended off season... working on fundamentals and foundation work in my surfing. I’ve always loved reinventing my surfing and having an open mind to progress. Whenever i’ve became too egotistic in it i struggle at it and the image i believe surfing should be. Blessed to be feeling this space. @mymatechom and @oakleysurfing keeping me focused from a distance and lucky @jimhogan_ is an old school guru. @trentcallaghanphotography

Found a good spot to practice #socialdistancing A couple weeks back with two of my favorites @gregerickson_ @williekessel. It’s not every day that natures effects are so felt. Taking time to adventure ain’t bad and it sure never seizes to amaze. @hyundaiusa #HyundaiPalisade by @williekessel
