Almost anywhere along California's coast people can find decent waves to ride. For the surfers at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay is the place to be, right off of Highway One. Only a twenty minute drive from campus and guaranteed waves, sometimes small, sometimes big, sometimes good and sometimes only okay.
In Between Waves offers a glimpse into the feelings and adrenaline that comes from surfing as a female. All of the featured surfers are from Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo. Photos and videos are shot in Morro Bay; near the rock, from the sand and at the iconic surf spot, "The Pit".
