Photo Gallery: Christor Lukasiewicz’s West Coast Excursion
Before wrapping up a busy and productive year in 2013, Surf and Abide contributing photographer, Christor Lukasiewicz, made a trip out west to escape the early symptoms of winter that had been inflicting his home state of New Jersey.
Hitting various locations along the southern California coastline, Christor capitalized on the quality swell that adorned the shores in late November, capturing some amazing moments in between his own surf sessions and enjoying the conversely mild weather conditions of the Golden State.
Below are choice photographs from Lukasiewicz’s journey west.
