Photo Blog: Summertime at its finest - shredding the gnar

Living in Newport Beach, California where "it's summertime and the livin's easy," the temperature rarely drops below a frigid 72 with minor cloud cover.  Every other Friday I'll showcase the secret gems and lifestyles of us Newport Beach residents.  When someone learns that I live in the OC, one question pops into mind: "Do you surf?"  I figured there is no better way to start off the summer blog with a few shots of the latest south swell.
