Es eff

Went to sf. “Business” justification was to visit the Fatlace garage/Illest paddock before sema. Really just wanted to go surfing lol. Went yelp crazy through the city and I feel like I ate at all the trendy spots and definitely had all the latte/coffee the city had to offer. Well not everything but for less than 4 full days I killed it. Lived like a king for sure. Crashed on my buddies couch in Oakland fat Chris. He made the video about me back in the day about how I got Into drifting interviewing all my la Jolla buddies I grew up with super funny. Seen here-
curb floaters and back fades!
Floater is a surfing move where you ride on top of the broken section of the wave and come down. It’s called curb floaters because I would drift up curbs on accident trying to learn with them in my car. It’s called back fades because my friends mom always would forget what drifting was called and think it was called fading haha. Back fading would be tandem.

Anyways,-

Blue bottle coffee. Best latte on the trip by far. Really cool locations all over sf and Oakland. All in unassuming places with very subtle branding outside.

Got this granola from them with mason jar for 3.50 I was stoked. They didn’t have much of a breakfast offering. The one on mission and mint or something like that has more food stuff (thanks to joe Ayalas sister or wife for the tip-some female ayala)

Jeromie power (not my brother) driving us to the other end of the beach as the tide changed full wetsuit. He has a Honda element and doesn’t care to get it wet or beat it up inside its dope. He recently had a kid and had so much diapers baby wipes etc in there full pooping station

Went to Fatlace garage and Illest paddock. Cool to see where all the crew works. These are some wheels they literally turned inside out for their sema project with rwb

Rad sunrise. Gotta get on it early because the bridge traffic sucks. It also costs 6$ to drive on the bridge that sucks too
