The boys are back in town
The reason we travelled to California. This is Chris Small a former US Marine who was introduced to surfing and at his first surf camp stood on one leg, truly amazing. We had a unbelievable time and met the most generous and truly welcoming bunch of people I have ever met in my life. The crew who put Operation Amped together out there all worked there socks off. I would like to thank everyone from Erin Ashley for lending me her favourite Log so we could surf some small but amazing waves, Joe Jackson and Bobby 'Diamond' Donnelly for ferrying us around without any complaints and putting up with two brits, Keynan Hobbs and Tom Tapp for getting us there and looking after us and all the crew, Betty, Skylar, Pat, Shaggy, John, Felippe, Clayton, Keith, Todd, Tony, Wendy and anyone else who we worked alongside. But mainly I would like to thank the guys who came and went surfing, inspiring and humbling and the reason why its feels so good to give something back.
