One of the best things I ever did was take a surf trip with the guys from Aframe Surf Company. I didn’t know it then, but it changed the way I looked at my life. Here’s what happens when you shed all the excess baggage and go on a real no frills trip. There was no room for unnecessary weight while on a boat, various car rides, and far away walks. Since you leave all the stuff behind, you are forced to choose what is important. This not only happens in a luggage sense, but also in a sense of what to bring mentally and spiritually. At first, I thought I was just going to enjoy a few days of uninterrupted surfing, but I didn’t expect a few days of pure wonderful uninterruption.

After my new found realization of what is important, it occurred to me to reconnect with an old friend, a friend who happened to be part of that faithful surf trip, someone who has had his fair share of similar trips, someone who has undoubtedly experienced what I experienced many times over. That’s what I was hoping to achieve when I invited Niconiks Ybanez over for a conversation. I got everything I expected and more.

We sat in our front porch late at night sipping a few beers and just talked. It was one of the best conversations as we talked about the power of simple living, the joys of surfing, reminiscing our high school years, and playing music in Cebu. It’s a conversation that goes all over the place, but aren’t all conversations like that?

Enjoy the podcast.
