This episode takes us on a journey through the absolute heart of what the Valencia brothers call home. Panga boats are the transportation through Barra De Navidad, they're like mainland Mexico taxicabs, so we hopped on one and started our day with a hike and adventure over to Coco's for a little swim and chill sesh. We ended up hanging at the Valencia's house that evening and Yahir and Gerardo absoutely scored an insane skim session, literally in their back yard. The following day Gerardo took us to the city of Cihuatlan for the Dia de la Virgin de Guadalupe. This is possibly the largest celebration of Mexican culture held every year and Gerardo was so stoked to share it with us. He's never missed one, ever, and we were there to share this one with him. It was a truly special experience. We wrap up with a classic sunset skim session in Melaque with John and Gerardo. What an opportunity it was to be able to share the waves with the Melaque locals. Their stoke is so pure and the passion for skimming there is incredible.

Back in March we held a Just for Fun event in our hometown of Nokomis Beach, FL. The day started out with a free skim clinic where we had close to 75 participants ranging from beginners to experienced riders. We had some of the best counselors come out for the event with John Akerman, Cole Hutchinson, Jared Dugan, Jason Wilson, Naji Taha, Benny Ray, and ET Beaugrand. There definitely was nothing but smiles to be seen around the beach with this crew at the helm.
