Some might think the SWA instructors have the best job in the world. They spend a couple of weeks helping Amigas get the waves of their lives and then have a week or two off to party, surf, and play. Some might be right!
On a week off in early December, the waves ended being small, clean, and tubular. The Amigas staff were posted up at Hotel Chancletas and between surf sessions spent some time with new friends in a daily pool party. Here are some photo highlights from the week courtesy of Rick Briggs of @DondeX photography.
Abi smiles through a super cute bottom turn.
Kinda awkward when your head gets barreled but your butt gets left outside the tube. Ha ha!
One day when the waves were small, the girls took a boat trip to a river mouth around the corner, and girls did what girls do…. jumped off a boat for the photo.
Michelle rarely goes surfing without having a pineapple waiting for her on the beach or in this case, the boat!
Afternoon pool parties are a must!
Chloe paddles out at the river mouth.
Emily didn’t get any good tube shots even though she is actually an awesome tube rider. This is how it made her feel.
On weeks off, Holly usually goes into hermit mode getting work done on the computer and hanging out with her little girl. But when the waves are hollow she may sneak out and grab a view.
Jackie has been working hard on her tube riding skills. It’s paying off as she scored the best photo of the batch. YEW!
Michelle aka “Grom” is probably the most frothy of the bunch.
She has also been working on her tube riding. Nice one!
The girls compete for “likes” on Instagram. Looks like Chloe just pulled ahead! Better get some more tube shots, Em-dawg!
Reesie is acrobatic.
Reesie has been seriously stepping it up in the surf lately. Sick shot Amiga!
Awesome photos by this guy, Rick Briggs! MUCHAS GRACIAS!
