On November 9 Owen, myself and Benja departed Melaque for a week of surfing and camping at la ticla. La Ticla is located on Nahuatl land and therefor has not been overrun by tourists and hotels. It is a beautiful, relaxing haven with a nice break at the rivermouth. It was bigger than anything we have surfed and proved to be a challenge, but we both ended up catching some great waves. I love ticla. The camping is great and the people I was with even greater. The week flew by so fast. Now we are in zihuatanejo after a 12 hour bus ride from Melaque. I was super sad to leave Melaque and the AMAZING friends there, especially Benja, who helped us in so many ways. Today. We surfed a spot called Playa Linda in Ixtapa. It was fun, a small river break that was super easy to surf. The best part tho, was the huge sea turtle that popped up next to me in the water. SO COOL!
