IRVINE, Calif., April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- While most of the United States endured a harsh winter this year, Southern Californians enjoyed yet another mild season. But it's not just the weather that makes SoCal special. It's also blessed with some of the most beautiful geography in the world, framed by the azure splendor of the Pacific on one side and dramatic mountains and desert scenery on the other. Southern California is one of the few places in the world where an enthusiastic athlete can surf and ski in the same day.
Action-sports blogger – and California native – Lindsay Tredent puts local terrain to the test with the help of wireless technology. In this Ultimate #MoreSoCal Day video, watch Tredent kick-start her day at 5:00 a.m. to hit the slopes at Bear Mountain in Big Bear Lakes.
Of course, SoCal is distinguished by more than scenery – the locale boasts one of the most culturally diverse populations in the country, and nowhere is that diversity better showcased than in the cuisine. After shredding Bear Mountain, Tredent enjoys a traditional Mexican meal while viewing her GoPro Hero 3 footage on the Verizon Ellipsis 7 tablet.
Tredent's ultimate SoCal adventure ends in Huntington Beach, Calif., or Surf City USA. Home to the U.S. Open of Surfing, Huntington Beach is one of the most well-known beaches in SoCal for hitting the waves.
Before suiting up, Tredent takes a moment to soak in the sun and check out her blog, FitandAwesome.com. After a busy morning of snowboarding and lunch at Avila's El Ranchito Mexican Restaurant, she could definitely use the break.
It's not long before Tredent is back in action and riding the waves. Through the lens of the GoPro Hero 3, she captures her experience as she reaches her goal of snowboarding and surfing all in one day.
