Wrap

And that’s a wrap. Theonemileslide is done. 9 months, 10 Counties, 20,000km overland. Seven surfboards, 80 new spots, 300+ sessions, 5000 or so waves…  Countless new friends, good times and life-changing experiences. Thanks to everyone I met and travelled with along the way, you’re all legends and made this trip what it was: Super-f#@king-awesome.

Best of the best. Chilean perfection

 

Oh yea, have been asked whether the one mile slide actually happened. Unfortunately No. Longest rides probably went something like:

Pavones (Costa): 400m
La punta (Mex): 450m
Punta Lobos (Chile): 500m
Puntilla (Chile): 600m
Chicama (Peru): 900m – though you could ride the full 2k length by getting a few waves down the point

So all in all….Fail. Will have to try again. Sigh.
