  • How Convenience is Ruining the Planet: An Underlying Truth of the Modern World

    If you would have asked me a year ago where I thought I’d be, or what I thought I’d be doing right now, the picture I would have painted for you would have looked something like this: Me. Out of the country. Some place with better waves than home. Perhaps in the tropics. Fun night […]

  • Baja Bliss: An Exception to the Rule

    Months before I first decided on only biking to surf for one year, I made a commitment to one of my closest friends to go with him to Baja to celebrate his birthday. I take pride in honoring my commitments, and having missed his birthday trip the last two years, I decided to make his weekend […]

  • The Perks of Driving Less

    Two weeks and two days into my year long mission, and I have driven my car on only five occasions. Considering I was previously driving my car every day, multiple times per day, I think Bike to Surf is off to an effective start. I’m fortunate to live close to my day job, which is […]

  • This One’s for the Landlubbers

    Mother Nature graces Southern California winters with an unfair amount of seventy degree and sunny days. In the mornings when I walk past my neighbor’s house en route to work, he’ll joke with me from his front porch, “Another shitty day out.” It gets me every time. Today was one of those days, and two friends and […]

  • Why I Will Bike to Surf for One Year

    In January of 2014, I read an article on The Inertia that resonated with me, and has since led to me making a radical reversal in my priorities and the way I live my life. The article, written by Tim Baker, is titled Letter to Surf Magazine Editors of the World. As someone who is interested in writing […]

  • Introducing The Bingin Inn

    It was a blazing hot November afternoon when I first stumbled upon the Bingin Inn, after a night of debauchery left me in search of a new residence. The moment I walked up into the driveway however, it felt like anything but a fresh start. Standing there drenched in sweat, I was greeted by a […]

  • Grub Sessions: The Uluwatu, Bali Edition

    When I think of all the reasons why I love traveling to Indonesia on surf trips, the vast variety of waves, the endless beauty of its coastlines and the exchange rate all come to mind. The food however, does not. If you spend time there, it becomes increasingly important to pick and choose where you […]

  • Grub Sessions: The San Diego Edition

    Surf sessions are great and all, but what about the all-important Grub Sessions? If there is one thing I know, it’s that food has never tasted better than after a solid surf session. In MWA’s newest series, I will spotlight the best post-surf meals I encounter around the world, and offer you a variety of options […]

  • Byron Bay Backpackers Inn For the Win

    Northern New South Wales is easily one of the best places on Earth to be a surfer and should be on the bucket list of anyone who seeks a wide variety of perfect, uncrowded beach breaks and points. As you drive south from the sunshine filled circus that is the Gold Coast, a magical transformation […]

  • A Margaret River Car Hire You Can Actually Afford

    I left the land of babes and board shorts for the beautiful and widespread countryside of Southwestern Australia. Arriving in Perth mid-morning I learned that renting a car while under the age of 25 was well out of my price range, so the bus was going to have to do. I caught an express coach at […]
