Venice Pier

Cross-stepping 101: the ultimate goal is to walk your way to the nose of the longboard and hang ten, gracefully. Unfortunately, my recent attempt was not so graceful...I ended up with a sprained ankle. And, well...that's why I'm shooting photos rather than surfing. This guy makes it look so simple, he's obviously more skilled than me! Sure is hard to stay outta the water with an injury when the waves look this fun!
