This photograph was snatched during a road-trip along the famous El Sur Grande coastline immortalised by beat writer Jack Kerouac in the book Big Sur. Hundreds of miles from the strip stores and industrial estates and super highways and cliches and truisms of South California, Big Sur is difficult to compare. Think of the fabled Italian coastlines around Amalfi but add waves; Victoria’s Great Ocean Road but with a dark, elevated twist. From Ragged Point to near Monterey, you twist alongside the Santa Lucia mountains, the road above a sometimes sinister coast that is nearly always visible along the highway’s 140 clicks. “I was freaking out about nailing as many angles as I could on our two-day escapade,” says the photographer, Ryan Craig. “It has so many little novelty waves that allow fun wedges to form. This shot was mid-morning and it was one of countless rotators that he was throwing down.” Owen backed up this trip by taking his RV, and gal, on a road-trip even further north to San Francisco.
