I will never forget the way this guy would greet us every time we showed up at his hotel in Mexico, he would use the few words of English he knew to create the biggest smile on your face. So many good memories! You will be missed Paco, Rest In Peace "my friend"
Surfing magazine was always one of my favorite publications, bummed to see them go but happy to have been a part of a few of the issues. Thanks @chachfiles for nailing this shot two years ago on what was probably one of the best surfs I have ever had, this makes it that much more memorable. @petertaras @taypaul @jimmicane nice work and I look forward to see the cool shit I know you guys will come up with in the future!
Dodging my friends surfing is one of my favorite activities besides surfing itself. I put together a reel of my water footage from last winter. Link is in my bio starring: @tessistess @jessecolombo @dylansouthworth @austinmeetsworld @gooch_d @nat_young @noahwaggy @mattrockhold @noikukui @lairdhamiltonsurf @joshmulcoy
@tessistess and I met @kala.buthman in Spain for the last 2 weeks of his semester abroad but only lasted a few days in Europe knowing how close we were to North Africa. The swell forecast was looking dismal and we would have been stoked to get "Camel Point" just head high. We spent the following 10 days scoring an unexpected array of surf and finished off 2016 the best way we could have asked for. The link to the short film "Camel Point" is in my bio. Thanks @reda_benhima @mustaphaelbaz @cliff_kapono @thesaltygiant_ @sunshine_surf_morocco @ghettodogworld #getrad
I love turning but I prefer going straight : @mustaphaelbaz
Noticed waves like this off in the distance, drove down a small dirt road and found a sketchy spot to get into the water. I destroyed my board jumping off/onto rocks on the way out but surfed with just my brother for the next couple hours. I don't remember the last time I surfed waves that good with nobody around. I'd sacrifice another board to do it again too.
My little brother @kala.buthman has been hanging out in Spain practicing his Spanish for the last 4 months but I came to visit and we jumped on a flight to Africa, he has been absolutely shredding, I think he put all the bread they eat on this side of the world into his turns. : @mustaphaelbaz, @evilcorp_surfboards
@tessistess, thanks for being born and giving us an excuse to come to North Africa! Happy 25th!
Our costumes went together perfectly last night @tessistess

I'm supposed to head home on Tuesday but I'm thinkin I might have to change that. : @tessistess
Thanks for capturing this moment in time @sacraficialamb. I remember it like it was yesterday. Hoping for a few more waves like this in next few weeks!
I shot a few of these kids when they were mini groms, pretty rad to see their progression as they get older. The full edit is live on stabmag.com @quiksilver
