Sunset surfing into a Golden California Spring

Sunset surfing into a Golden California Spring

written by Sarah Lee April 10, 2017

Sunset surfing is the best, and this was a session for the books! Aside from the mixed up swells and spring winds, there have been some gorgeous days down in Encinitas after the La Nina rains finally subsided. The day before, the surf was too small, the day after, too blown out. It’s been stunning around North County with the super bloom of wildflowers on the cliffs and the loggy waves below.

This night, I swam out with talented long boarders Morgan Sliff and Christian Stutzman. All of these photos were taken on a Canon 5Ds with a Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 non-IS in a Kobetich water housing. Check out what else I shoot with, on my gear page.
