Shot young web investor Ryan Jacob in Redondo Beach for Forbes. Ryan had a very nice office overlooking the ocean(as seen in the pic). He must be investing in the right places to have a location like that. Ryan was a very nice dude with a pleasant personality. Looks like he's trying to also give surfing a go now that he's relocated to California. I've never been to the beach in that part of town so I was surprised when I was scouting to see that Torrance Beach is a really nice break. There also seemed to be a nice point break just south of Torrance right where Palos Verdes ends. It looks like it breaks left at the point and I think on the other side is the Lunada Bay point break. Gotta be careful surfing these breaks though, I've heard the locals are kinda modern day pirates. Won't be expecting any friendly smiles and hello's at these beaches. Oh well, I guess that's what happens when you've got a nice wave in your backyard and you don't want the crowds to spoil your spot. I wonder if these same locals inspired the masked surfer gang bank robbers lead by Patrick Swayze, from the film Point Break. Gotta check that movie out again!
