Hobie Surf: So Hot Outside…. So Hot in Here….

Our Solar Overlord…

Remember last year at this time here in Southern California, when we were all wearing heavy jackets and complaining about our total lack of summer…. oh, how I miss last year.

I feel like we are actually living in an Endless Summer, it’s going to be 95 degrees at the Coast today and tomorrow… SERIOUSLY.. ninety five!! Which means inland is so hot that it has liquified. So, since we can not keep cool this weekend.. here are incredible photos of Keith MalloyTrevor Gordon, Chris BurkardCyrus SuttonDane Gudauskas and Foster Huntington on an exploratory surf trip to the Kamchatka Peninsula in eastern Russia. Look through, and if you want more, check out the Patagonia blog: The Cleanest Line to see past updates.

Hopefully, you’ve been keeping up with the Kamchatka surf crew during their travels through remote eastern Russia. We just received a new sat-phone call from Patagonia ambassador Keith Malloy and our on-the-scene reporter Foster Huntington describing the latest leg of their journey.
