It is hard to pick a single moment from all the time I spent with Dillon, but this memory always comes to my mind when I think of him and the memory shows how when you are with Dillon you do things you don’t usually do. One night Dillon and I were at his house and I am not really sure what we did the whole night. I think we spent some time on the computer, we got some food pretty late, but whatever we were doing we stayed up until we were aproaching the sunrise. So Dillon thought we should just stay up a couple hours longer and go surfing before sunrise. A classic idea genearated by Dillon to prolong a night that was going well. And I thought it was a great idea because there was some swell and the water would be glossy for a few hours so we would definitley have a good session. We loaded the car with our surf boards and started driving north up PCH. I remember blasting music feeling a new boost of energy from the excitement of going surfing and the infectious enthusiasm Dillon constantly displays. When we got to the spot we could not even see the waves, so we checked another spot while the sun was rising. We went to County Line which did not look as good as we hoped zeroes would be so we went back to zeroes and at that point it looked spectacular. Dillon and I ran from the car jumped into our wetsuits and paddled into one of the best surf sessions I have ever had. It was zeroes at its best, there were a couple of guys, not a touch of wind, and fun head high lefts were rolling in. Dillon and I surfed for what felt like forever, catching wave after wave and enjoying every moment of it. We left the water with our fingers wrinkled and our arms feeling heavy and went on to eat way too much food on the way back.
I contantly imagine myself in that moment again, but I know there is no way I can ever have it. I still have trouble processing the idea that Dillon is gone and everytime it hits me I miss him so much.
I think this website is amazing, I cried quite a bit while looking at it and I think that shows how well it represents Dillon.
Thank you Steve and Harriet for making the webiste, what you are doing is incredible.
I love you Dillon and I will never forget you.
