    • Thanks Paul!! I appreciate it. And thanks for your comment on my book. I am finishing up a book tour of southern Baja (cape region and La Paz) tonight. As part of my book talk I illustrate the role that the conservation of the Tijuana Estuary had in my own career. It is also great to know that we helped make the Sloughs reef a marine protected area.

  2. Just finished the book last week. Wonderful! Surfing CAN change the world ;)
