catch a wave and you’re sitting on top of the world.
by victoria comment



i grew up in the san fernando valley, just over the hills from malibu. i spent many more days ditching school than i probably should share, loading up my mum’s country squire station wagon with boys, boards and beach towels. so when i saw chris brown’s latest blog, i instantly fell in love. chris is the editor/writer of refuled magazine, and his new site choka, is loaded with many great beach and surf inspired photographs and stories of summer. choka, a surf term for ‘bitchin’, awesome, cool’, etc., is dedicated to surf, skate & snow. c’mon, catch the choka wave.

  1. I lived in the valley too and spent my weekends on Zuma Beach. I am back here now as an adult.

    I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else…

    Chris Brown is definitely a creative dude! Love him!

  2. Victoria, I LOVE this! I am a beach girl through and through, and while there are times that i feel i have posted too much about this beautiful southern california ‘surfing’ lifestyle on my blog, tenthings-tenthings. i have to admit, it’s in my heart and it’s really easy to blog about what you love. so obvious by your always beautiful, heartfelt blog posts.

    thanks again for sharing. you are truly an inspiration to me.

  3. Love this! I grew up in SoCal too (just north of the SF valley in Ventura County), and this post takes me back to the sand, sea & surfer-dude boyfriends of my youth. To this day, standing on the beach and just taking in the vastness of ocean puts me instantly at peace.

    Thanks for sharing! :)
