DAVENPORT, California – Surf's always up in this tiny unincorporated beach town just north of Santa Cruz. I took lots of shots on the scenic drive down Highway 1 from San Francisco en route to an overnight stay at the Davenport Roadhouse. This detail of the local surf shop (shot early in the morning before it opened) is one of my favorites.
