The whole idea of the road trip itself was really inspired by the first segment of Teton Gravity Research's surf movie Shack Therapy; Brian Conely driving his huge truck through Baja's endless dirt roads to surf alone in perfect remote Mexican paradise. A short part of this journey put a special specimen under the spot light, Glen Horn. Surfer and Surfboard shaper 3 months per year in San Diego, he lives the other 9 months in "Big Red" his RV is a converted '67 delivery truck. He split this time in between 2 secret locations that he tries to preserve as pure as they were 30 years ago when he first traveled there.

Driving the 1000 miles that would lead us to the ferry to get to the mainland, we randomly stopped in one of the Seven sisters' gorgeous point breaks. After the painful (for the RV) dirt road drive, we stopped to surf our first real good "baja style" empty wave. While having a bit of a rest under the warm sun, we've met a women running, who quickly invite us for the diner... On the menu, fresh halibut caught by her husband, Glen Horn.
