Last days

After weeks of procrastination, its finally happening. Leaving Atlantis, leaving Pichilemu, leaving great uncrowded waves and heading north. Many miles to go until California and I have yet to make a dent.

The last week has been a blast. Pete showed up from NZ, some great waves around, Asados, Amigos. Must be getting a bit desensitized as I left my camera at home during a few Lobos sessions with El Mirador doing its best impression of Padang Padang. Long hollow tuuubes.

I’ll miss:

  • Carlos, Vivi & the family @ Hostel Atlantis
  • Ollie, Inigo, Markus, Brian, John, Joy, Diego, Rob and Matt and all the other crew that have been through here
  • Uncrowded southern points
  • Luli Love. From being a cute, fat little gordita of a puppy she’s grown into a canine wrecking machine. My wetsuit hates her but the rest of us love her.
  • Chori-pan and Carlos’ especial Pollo Asado
  • Oven-baked Empanada Pino from Ross. Alltime.
  • The rock jump @ Los Morros. Standing out there with waves unloading on the shelf 10m away. What a way to start a surf

I won’t miss:

  • The rock jump @ Los Morros. Risking board and limb every entry. Idiotic.
  • Santiago kooks acting as psuedo-locals in Pichi. Let your surfing do your talking. Jerks.
  • Cancer dog. Every day that cyst got bigger, he got skinnier and I felt bad.

Tomorrow we aim north. 1850k to Iquique. 28 hours on a bus and my only book is Darwin’s The Origin of Species. Should be riviting. Chao.

    Uhh, “I’ll miss…Joy?!” Duhhh. So BOGAN.
    Hahaha. Dude, you guys totally made half my stay in Pichi awesome. Otherwise, Ollie&I would’ve been knitting sweaters in the living room. Thanks for being you! Just the right amount of cool, caballero, and geek! :) I hope you guys find more awesome waves and fewer encounters with cancer dogs. Take care of yourselves and hope our paths cross again so I can learn more Kiwi slang. Chau, amigo~!

      Ooops. Editted. Hope the sweaters are coming along well now :) Enjoy the rest of the stay – was great having a bit of female influence around the place! (& I don’t mean the kind you hear coming from Ollies room ;) Chuur
