2019 was the year of dreaming BIG.
One dream we never thought possible was taking our good friend Adrien Toyon back to the place he was born.
But persist enough and anything is possible.
As we boarded Flight 566 to Beirut we had no idea if we could really pull it off. But we did.
We left 5 days later wearing wry smiles, humbled by the overwhelming welcome we were met with. Humbled by the quality of waves and the surf culture in it’s infancy. A modern, progressive society reflected in its gentle people, keen to disparage the ghouls of the past and to show the rich cultural and social heritage of their beautiful nation. A beacon of liberty, tolerance and prosperity in the Middle East.
Lebanon, its waves and culture has some bright days ahead.
And hopefully so do we all in 2020…….
Welcome to the end of a year and the end of a decade.
Happy New Year you beautiful souls x
