I remember this day clearly. You kept asking me to venture out of my comfort zone and drive North with the guys to surf the Ranch. I had heard stories of how big it could get at the Ranch from Rick (and I was not havin' it).
Everyday you would ask and everyday I resisted. Frankly, I was a big chicken. But you kept pushing and encouraging me to give it try. You told me that I had the skills to handle the Ranch (I wasn't so sure about that). Anyway, you finally managed to get me to get over my fears and come with you to surf the Ranch.
Lucky for me the surf was crappy and closed out. You were disappointed but I was secretly relieved! I was also happy to have been given that push from you to venture out of my comfort zone. You always encouraged me to travel more. You always pushed me to explore more surf destinations (you planted that seed for surf travel).
Thank you David. I will miss your generosity and your stoke.
