"This photo does a great job of epitomizing my recent, zany month-long trip to Oz with two great buddies from medical school. We spent most of our time searching for waves on the eastern and southern coasts with more than a fair amount of near disasters, breakdowns, hangovers, and canned fish interspersed between sessions. We've since graduated, but we were dangerously close to never returning from that wild land of Oz. My friend here wasn't super experienced, but he was always stoked. Words/Photo: Chris Stadler"
