Cliff House on Great Highway

I take my daily route to the studio along the beach via the Great Highway here in San Francisco and have rarely seen anyone bombing the curved road leading down the hill from the Cliff House to Ocean Beach. It’s not impossible of course but it’s quite steep at the top and speed is immanent without fail. Yes, I’ve seen someone cruise their longboard and carve it while speed-checking around the turns but today, with the perfect Bay Area weather, I finally got a glimpse of someone charging it. As I made the second to the last curve up the hill (last bend; right-turn in the photo below), a solo kid, probably 15 years old, street board with hard wheels, silver headphones the size of his head, was gunning-it with no foot-drag at top speed. Styled and natural… This turn is where you think either, “I’m making it, or it’s over.” I probably would have thought that even before this section of the road, further up. Stoked as I raised my arm out the window towards him this beautiful afternoon in elation. It made my Monday for sure…
