Surfing Swamis with Devon DeMint

One of the true perks of my work is meeting incredible people like Devon DeMint. She’s a Leucadia local, absolute shredder, skateboarder, inspirational writer and rad mom to two little beach bums. You’d be hard pushed to meet someone with as much stoke and bigger smile than this little lady – plus, she’s got talent to match. As one of my favorite surfers to photograph, I was stoked to head to Swamis a few days ago

Known as @mermaidsightings on instagram, Devon has a follow worthy page and wonderful website www.taleofamermaid.com. She’s also the driving force behind this incredible ladies skate group www.sheskateshere.com (@sheskateshere). If you don’t already, you should go and follow her RIGHT NOW! Keep your eyes peeled for this mermaid at her local spot – North Reef Beacons.

Small waves and rainy days…

There’s more rain in our forecast! I love the rain, especially since California is always in need of a good soaking. Rain in So Cal also has its downsides – crazy drivers, dirty pollutants and trash in the ocean and on the beaches and more potholes for me to navigate on my way to work (sigh)

There’s more rain in for forecast this week as we’re in another atmospheric river weather event right now. If you’ve not yet followed It’s been providing us with some drought relief and our mountains with stacks of snow over the past weeks and looks set to continue in the forecast for a little while longer. I really enjoy reading the report by Nathan Todd Cool over on the Swellwatch on Surfer – really interesting stuff. Take a look here for a rundown of the latest So Cal surf forecast https://forecasts.surfer.com https://forecasts.surfer.com

In anticipation of another solid few days of no surfing and no photos, I suited up and headed out for a morning session with some of my favorite girl crew. Some small waves at Grandview which were super fun. Condition stayed beautifully clean all morning and we were joined by a pod of playful dolphins.

Here’s to some sunnier days and more swell, and more photography sessions real soon – Ashleigh
