Last December 12—a very photogenic date on our calendars—Owen and I headed to San Juan in La Union to take photos of special kids who were given free surf lessons by the San Juan Surf School.
Covering this event was something new for us, and somehow it was a good—nay the right—end to a year that we think has brought many beautiful changes in the way we take photos and travel.
About two weeks after this, we tried surfing http://two2travel.com/tag/surfing/ for the first time too, and anybody who’s had the chance to stand up on that surfboard and have a long ride would understand how surreal and great the feeling is. We could only imagine how it had been for these kids.
These free surf lessons are an amazing gift of discovery that I’m sure they were all grateful to receive. Thank you to Elaine Abonal of Surfista Travels for inviting us to cover! We admire your big hearts. :)
