los caracas - if anyone from venezuela is reading this...please drop me a line. I am heading down to venezuela between christmas and new years. Im looking to get some surfing in, but I dont know anyone down there. Im not looking to crowd a local spot or be a disrespectful kook. Ive surfed my whole life and i know what its like having tourists crowd your break. With that in my mind, you can be sure that any info I get I am not going to use to be an asshole. If you want to show some aloha and help a dude out, please email me.Thanks,TomTDunbabin@yahoo.com
