Meet Austin from Laguna Beach, CA.
The one word that best describes Austin's life today is "Paradise."
If Austin could change one thing in the world, he would "Put an end to hatred." The way he would go about making this change would be to be an example and be kind to others.
One year from today, Austin would like to buy the oceanfront home on Brooks St.
If Austin's life were a movie, it would about showing how surfing makes your life better. The title of his movie would be called "Screaming Lefts."
I met Austin after watching him from the Oak St. lookout deck. I was checking out the surf and saw Austin standing on the beach taking in the beauty of an early morning surf with very few guys in the water.
I've seen Austin surfing his soft top board at Brooks St. and he is always having fun when he's in the water. He may or may not remember, but there have been a few times I've been surfing with Austin and he would take off on the same wave as me in such a way that was friendly and not obnoxious.
The colors in the sky and the ocean this morning were vibrant and with Austin in the foreground, it made for a brilliant photo. I'm thinking of sending the photo to Billabong to promote their board shorts. Who knows, maybe this will launch his modeling career and make some cash to buy his beachfront home on Brooks St.
I'm sure I'll be seeing Austin in surf as he is charging the "Screaming Lefts."
