I took a trip to California in August 2010, starting my adventure in San Diego and traveling as far north as Gualala, CA. This video is a journal of my 8 days on the left coast...exploring the Pacific Ocean while freediving and visiting friends and family. I spent 2 days in L.A. with my cousins who took me on a local tour, but shot limited footage...only of the random car in my cousin Matt's garage..odd how that sits untouched for over 2 decades. The ocean conditions during my visit, were generally cold and murky, but my freediving friends still took me out to dive in their local waters. It was a thrill to dive in the kelp and hunt for abalone...getting my first ab was an amazing experience. I hope to visit the left coast again soon.
