That summer, I was taking a color photography class. We had to pick a theme to shoot and I had picked surfing. Ian surfed every weekend with his friend Dave and I always felt so left out. It was amazing, even after the worst chemo, Ian would still wake up early every saturday and surf. He bought me a little pink single fin off craigslist then took me to ZJ's to get a wetsuit. I felt so super radical, and we would go surfing in Jimmy's Westfalia like we were the real deal. I mostly just walked around taking pictures of surfers as they walked around the beach. This was the first project in school that I was totally stoked on. I got a sweet tan, and I got to spend time with my sweet Ian every weekend.
