Four fabulous days surfing Pavones

Mamon chinos make good car snacks! We grabbed a bag from a man on the side of the road on the 5 hour journey down from Hermosa. Well, those…and cookies dipped in nutella! hahaha
This was the first time I have EVER seen this kind of monkey! I think they were squirrel monkeys…and everyone else in the car did as well so that’s what I am going to call them haha. There were about 30 of them scrambling across the road and jumping into the trees. They were as interested in us as we were in them! Divine!
Just before you get to Pavones, there is a bridge with a height restricting bar on the entrance so we had to take off all of our boards to get across. Above is Sebastian, as always in best spirits, lugging one of the five board bags across, and below is a friendly local chap (who had clearly done this before!!) drinking the Tona which he earned for helping lug the rest of the board bags. Thank you Sir!

Surfing surfing and more surfing. I think in three days I surfed about 21 hours! It was incredible. There is nothing better. The great thing about surfing a wave like Pavones is that because it is so perfect, you can repeat your turns over and over again and really concentrate on getting it right. Unlike surfing a beach break where you normally only get one or two chances at a manoeuvre, Pavones is a great training wave to practice and polish your surfing.
This is the view from our room. No surprise that it’s raining!!
Still waiting for the rain to stop to go for a surf!!
The tractor that saved us from our flat tyre on the way back from home from Pavones. Thank you tractor and thank you tractor driver Gustavo Solis!!
