Surfing in Austin Texas? Our son was raised in Southern California and grew up surfing. He also authored the book, Surf Stories by Ryen Phillips. A fun read, especially if you enjoy surfing tales. For those of you that enjoy outdoor cooking, he has also written Let’s Talk Outdoor Cooking. It has some great recipes and I especially like his stews. It is available for Kindle at Amazon.
He and his wife moved to Austin, Texas several years ago. They wanted to stay near the water, so they bought a sailboat and began sailing on beautiful Lake Travis. The photo below was taken from their boat.
When NLand surf park opened nearby, Ted took his board out of storage and was once again able to ride the waves. Yes, the top photo shows him surfing in Texas, something I thought I’d never see! I was thrilled when he sent us the photo. By the way,Ted designed and shaped the board he is riding. That’s another one of his many talents. Now he has the best of two worlds. He is able to surf and sail in a city he loves.
