Hi, I'm Devon.
I'm a writer and surfer. I quit may job last June to follow my heart and do both. Was it crazy? Probably, but it was just something I needed to do.
I've taken a journal with me everywhere since I saw Harriet the Spy in 6th grade and I've been in love with the ocean my whole life.
As an adult, I identified surfing and writing to be my favorite forms of self-expression, so it only made sense to write about surfing. I'm fascinated by words that perfectly describe feelings and I'm captivated by waves that help you demonstrate those feelings. Sand and eraser shavings seem to follow me around.
I was born and raised in Orange County, California, but now my husband Scott and I call San Diego home. We live in a sleepy beach town down the street from my parents. If the air grows quiet and the waves grow big, which isn't that often, we can hear the ocean. On days when the wind blows from the south we could probably even hear my parents. This is the way we like it. We live in a small community, but dream about big adventures.
We love to travel to uncommon places to find uncrowded waves. In all my travels I have found that the best adventures in life are the ones you least expect.
Devon is a sponsored surfer, well followed blogger and writer, and Daphne's newest brand ambassador! Stay tuned as she shares with us her healthy eating habits, active lifestyle tips, and continuous travel adventures.

We met up with green-thinking, global surfing philanthropist, Dave Rastovich and his crew from the TransparentSea Voyage in Orange County and again in San Diego to celebrate their journey down the California coastline as they follow the migration of the California Gray Whale.
TransparentSea is an awareness campaign that highlights coastal environmental issues, with an emphasis on whales and dolphins and the waters they inhibit. Throughout this voyage from Santa Barbara to Baja Mexico, TransparentSea followed the incredible mammal, while stopping in key coastal communities for beach cleanups, concerts, movie screenings and art auctions to share their experience and support Surfer’s for Cetaceans (S4C) and other ocean minded charities.

Most colors associated with autumn fall under a single spectrum: warm oranges, vibrant yellows and deep reds. PINK however, is the color of October. For an entire 31 days, NFL players incorporate pink into uniforms, marathon runners sport the iconic pink ribbon, and brands design exclusive pink products, all in an effort to increase the awareness of breast cancer.
One non-profit organization that takes the message beyond its celebrated month is Keep A Breast (KAB). Through art events, educational programs, and fundraising efforts, Keep A Breast hits cities across the nation to spread the word about breast cancer, share methods for early prevention, and encourage young people to be aware of their breast health.
The casts of "boobies" you see above are authentic KAB plaster casts of influential females ranging from professional athletes to celebrities, that are auctioned off as a fundraiser for future breast cancer programs.
Check out the Keep A Breast website HERE for the latest news, events and most importantly, learn how to take care of YOU!
