Sometimes getting up at 6 in the morning to go surfing while the weather is under 50 degrees is worth it, other times it is not. I am Jace Kennedy, a 16 year old sophmore in the MAD academy at Santa Barbara High School, trying to enjoy the finer things in life. Such as burritos, surfing, the beach, and exploring with friends. My brother, Colin, and my Dad were the first ones to introduce me to the ocean, surfing, and the outdoors. My dad is the one that took the picture attached below.

I knew from a young age that living in Santa Barbara was a blessing, and seeing all different parts of this town is something everyone should be able to see. From the views up in the mountains, to the ocean and the beach, and everything in between, Santa Barbara has something to do for everyone.IMG_0251
