Oh man! You know what this picture says?
This surf camp week was a delightful mix of spring break-ing, slumber party-ing, surfing sick waves, ATV-ing, and even sliding down some hills after sunset. 🙂
Let’s hear what surf-instructor extraordinaire Helen Bowditch has to say about the week:
“At Pura Vida Adventures we believe that the most important thing in learning to surf is … being able to laugh at yourself.
(surfing AND life advice!)
Yes of course it helps if you’ve got a strong core, thighs and can bust out pull ups like Sarah Connor in Terminator 2, but if you can have a jolly chuckle from time to time then your surfing journey is going to be a lot more fun.
Our last group of campers embraced this concept to the max.
(We apologize to other surfers who were in the water at that time and witnessed the group of hysterical screaming banshees). Not hysterically screaming. But sometimes surfing banshees just need to sunbathe a bit
Our Salsa Lizano Awards on the final night reflected the group’s joie de vivre. Jackie won the ‘Is it the blue side facing up’ Award and Jenny got the ‘Real Surfer’ Award for her hilarious daily surf reports. Sherry won ‘Queen of the Push the Bush’ for her excellent surf stance, Katy got the ‘Shred the Gnar’ for her embracing of surf lingo. Vera won ‘Adrenaline Junkie’ for facing her fears and Sue got the ‘Green Goddess’ for tearing it up at Cabuya. Jamie got the ‘Badass’ for continuing to surf despite getting bonked on the head by her board on the first day.”
Thanks Helen! Now here’s a bunch of badass babes surfing:
