Continuing our 'The Golden State Series', we capture Luiza Campos during a sunny California afternoon riding the wave that gave birth to surfing on the west coast - Malibu.

This wave has it's bittersweet moments. Flawless in every way, yet unbearably crowded. You can spend hours out there before you catch a one, and most likely you will be sharing it with five other people you have never seen before. But, there is always that one ride that makes it worth the effort.

As the world continues to get smaller and more people continue to flood to the same places, it's hard not to let your mind wander to somewhere far away, where maybe there is another undiscovered Malibu with no one around.

Within the chaos and with much patience, Luiza finds her space amongst a sea full of strangers.
