This summer was so fun! I got out of school in June and we had a fun swell here at home for 2 weeks, then it was off to California for 8 days to surf at USA Championships at Lower Trestles. We stayed in San Clemente and did the Trestles hike every morning with my friend Avery, we surfed Lowers and Uppers every day and then T-Street at night the waves were so fun!!! I do not like kelp though it’s slimy and freaks me out, but it does make your hair feel soft! And it keeps the waves clean! Usa Championships was fun and I met some new friends from Cali and Hawaii.
When we got home my BFF Fallon was here from Japan, she stayed the whole summer and I was so excited to see her, So we went to lifeguard camp together it was pretty fun. We surfed and swam everyday for the next few weeks. And then off again to Costa Rica. It was my first time leaving the country to go surfing. I went with a bunch of my friends to a surf camp with Lisa Andersen she is a 4x world champ and a really awesome person.
Lisa surfed with us and gave us tips everyday, the waves got pretty big so that was challenging but I figured it out! Costa was really cool, we saw monkeys, iguanas, crazy birds, horses, and even a tarantula preety cool stuff, Dirt roads, great surf, clear water it was awesome.
I also helped Tiffany with Jax surf training out with her surf camp that was fun working with all the kids.
I Also started working with a new coach Evan Thompson is his name, and he is a pro here in jax beach, he’s been training me to be a really good contest surfer so I can hopefully do well at prime this year, I want to try and make the USA team, I know that I have got to work hard. There is only 2 weeks left of summer vacation boooo, but it has been really fun!
