A photo series from a Baja surf trip.

WORDS AND PHOTOS BY DYLAN BELLINGAN.

The best part about living in San Diego is the ease of getting down south into Mexico. I wouldn’t say that this is a statement made by too many San Diego residents, but for surfers, it’s the truth. When the weather is warm and all the kooks go out to play, we head south for empty line ups, cheap tacos and laid back Baja vibes. 

We packed the coolers, boards, wetsuits and brought a couple cameras to document the trip. Four of us left on a Thursday and headed south on the 5, making our way to a campsite high above the waves by nightfall. For the next few days we enjoyed cold Tecates, warm camp fires, countless $1 tacos, and not to mention some really fun, empty waves. 

Here are a few photos from the trip...
