hey octavio, interesting collection of surfing shots, I just commented on your el salvador post. I should also mention, you are very talented at the computer illustrating. I probably ran into you. I was a beach rat too. Was born in your jr. year of high school though, 68. HAd the good fortune of being raised on the ocean in Miami, surfing, fishing and diving.
Not in Miami anymore, moved to indialantic way back, but work took me away from florida, to better waves......
you are any relation to Pedro Diaz, a surfer from Miami Springs around your age? He lives in Cocoa Beach now. remove the nospam)

Wow, very nice group of pictures! I had no idea you were practically a pro! I've never surfed. Never learned.

It looks like a lot of fun, though.

This looks amazing. I really wish I could surf. It has always been a dream of mine.
