next level.   I’m trying to make a relatively chronological recount of this trip so im going to post photos from earlier in the trip.  Since these photos, which we basked in whilst trekking the opposite ridge to Tuna, the greatest skate run ever, so we could bro out and take some epic photos.  The trek was dope, we trekked two days in a row, once from the top and once from the bottom, im still stoked.  The views were epic!  Its strange to have seen the place so many times in videos and photos and then to be on it and then to see if from ages away, the full presentation.. skating it was epic!!

Since then we’ve made our way up the coast through Santa Barbara and BigSur, we trekked up a HUGE mountain in BigSur but we saw not any mountain lions.  It was high, about 1.5kms above the sea (which was right underneath 😀 )  but i shot all that on film, as with much of this trip. yeeeeeow!!!!!

I’m stoking more and more, i was numb to the stoke at the beginning, i couldnt really handle it… but now it’s much more casual…  i got to skate under the sunset (and moonlight by the time we got to the bottom) from Berkeley over with SanFran in the background, it was dope.  the skating was too.  San Fran is sick.  California is an epic place, I feel like this state has so so so much to offer, on all fronts of stoke attainment.  I wanna go now, I’ve never had so much attainable stoke on hand.

the espresso paradox considers the point where the espresso’s speed benefits result in a longer completion time than if one had not spent time acquiring and consuming the espresso in the first place.  this point is mostly controlled by one’s desire to consume the espresso, not the resulting time gains.
