I was heading out to La Pared when my padrino called and asked me to help him out with something, so I turned completly around and decided to cut my loss by going to pine grove paddle and cash a few waves if I could. It felt real good to paddle about for a while before getting down to bussiness and even thought there were people waiting for me in Luquillo, sorry Josue, I made the best out of a minor inconvinience.

Ok, my first time ever in the water w my board At La Pared! The time was right, no classes, I called in sick to work, something I never do.....and Boom! Got Wet!... Actually the second that my boss told me it was o.k. to stay home, I jumped in the water...

Met some people, Josue and Gabriel, and Josue helped me out big time considering that I kept wipping out constantly. The waves were a lot bigger that Im used to but its about getting used to it, no matter how many times u wipeout. Now all I need is practice and maybe... to stand up at some point in my life!!! That would be pretty nifty!! Its worth the hour long drive, back and forth! Hopefully Ill be back on Saturday!

Description:

Today Dzhoara, my husband and I went to la ocho to paddle. This wasnt our plan, our plan was going to Pine Grove but it was too crowded. Id woken up from drinking heavilly and falling asleep with my contacts with a mega case of eye irritation and the only way I could actually do anything was with a bandage on my eye, so yes I looked like a pirate. Getting there took forever, it was equally crowded and I had to park about a mile away but I wasnt going home so I walked.

Once I got there we saw a group of people gathered and when I walked closer to see what it was and a few looked back it hit me. To the side there were about 20 boards, real boards not like the one I have and in the middle of the whole thing was a crown of flowers. Fuck!!! I quietly made myself scarse and headed for the water w DZ and hubby. 

Dzhoara and I paddled back and forth and when we were comming out, the group was comming in... Im a very religious person and what I saw that day was..... beautifull, fucking beautifull. A huge group of surfers saying good bye the best way they know how, passing us bye in prayer. The energy was creepy, calming and ..... beautifull. Im in awe and if my time comes this is the way Id like to say my final goodbye but hopefully not yet....

Maferefun Olokum, Maferefum Yemaya.
