Nicaragua !







I just got back from Nicaragua competing on the USA surf team at the Dakine ISA World Junior Championships. The contest was held at a really fun, but tricky, left wedge called Santanas. It was extremely hot and the waves were fun, but unfortunately I had an early round loss. I had a 7.17 and only needed a 3.17 and battled a French kid who ended up giving me a questionable interference. As always, interferences are tricky and I accepted my own mistakes, but was still obviously bummed on losing early for my team. However, we managed to place three surfers on the podium! Nikki Viesins, Frankie Harrer, and Jake Marshall helped us jump up to the bronze medal for over all team points.  The night we left was super gnarly. we had a bus pick us up at 1 am and drove us to the airport for a 630 flight. It’s not exactly easy to sleep on dirt roads with huge potholes so traveling I was pretty much a zombie. I woke up feeling pretty sick this morning so I’m just taking it easy. The US  Champs started today so I’m in san clemente trying to get better. Check it out ! Talk soon J
