Endless Session, Day 142: Shortboard dreams

My morning alarm is usually unnecessary.  My eyes pop wide open at 6 a.m., even after a long night at a roaring ’20s Christmas party.  Although I was awake, I neglected to move for at least an hour and thought about how much I’ve surfed in the past 5 days – over 20 hours of […]

Endless Session, Day 141: Surf adventure

Endless Session, Day 141: Surf adventure

Every day of surf is an adventure, whether local or not.  However, I think day 141 of consecutive days surfing surely takes the adventure cake. Dr. Luis Abrishamian pulled up to my house bright and early and we set off to pick up our coworker Teddy (aka Ted-Shred) from Providence Little Co of Mary Hospital, […]

Endless Session, Day 140: Different places, different faces

I’ve been on a bit of a Redondo Beach kick lately. It’s not that I don’t love my Hermosa Pier home break, it’s the appeal of getting out of town every once in a while and seeing new places and faces, even if that means only the next town over.  Sometimes I have no idea […]

Endless Session, Day 139: The waves of the sea

by Morgan Sliff  “The waves of the sea bring me back to me.” If I’ve ever been struck with a deeply sentimental chord by a quote, this would be the one.  In July, on Day 8 of my current surf-for-a-year mission, I landed on my head in shallow water at the Hermosa Beach pier and […]

Endless Session, Day 138:  Sunday funday

by Morgan Sliff Crowds can get frustrating.  You should always share the occasional wave, especially if the surf is inconsistent, but sometimes there are just far too many people at a spot, which causes things to get dangerous.  Today, on day 138 of an attempt to surf for a year consecutively, I witnessed surfboards flying […]

Endless Session, Day 137: Share the stoke

Endless Session, Day 137: Share the stoke

  by Morgan Sliff A smile is infectious.  The smiles of new surfers and my friends Marissa Kitahata and David Mendieta lit up the beach today, and their energy and excitement could be felt by all of the surrounding ocean enthusiasts. After a quick session early in the morning, I met Marissa and David (who […]

Endless Session, Day 136: Board meetings

Endless Session, Day 136: Board meetings

  by Morgan Sliff  I’ve frequented many surf spots in California, but sliding down the line at a brand new place is always a welcome change from the norm.  Amped for a surf trip, I popped out of bed at 5:30 and picked up Mike Siordia, who I now refer to as “Coach,” and we […]

Endless Session, Day 135: Solitude

by Morgan Sliff  Small doses of solitude can be restorative. Surfing every day with the amazing people that have become such a large part of my life brings me such joy – while sitting on our boards, floating in the water, we share such meaningful conversation (which is always promptly paused whenever a good wave rolls in) and laugh […]
