I remember the first time I got out to surf with an all black crew and the impact it left on me for months to follow. I knew I had to share this feeling with others. We were able to just talk how we wanted without having to code switch. It was the most freeing experience I’ve had in the outdoors. To be black and outdoorsy. I think all of us in that moment had just a taste of what it must feel like being white and being in these outdoor spaces. We didn’t have to think about what space we were taking up, we just got to be here. This is Elijah story and his experiences as a black man who enjoys the outdoors.
