Local booger girl Pamela Bowren is flying the local flag in Venezuela at the ISA world bodyboarding championships at Playa Parguita in Margarita Island. The event starts Sunday 25 Nov and runs until 2 Dec. It will be live streamed and updated on following website: www.isawbc.com. So go check it out and cheer on Pam and the SA team.
ML had a quick chat to Pam to find out what was going down on the other side of the pond...
"Generally awesome accommodation where we are staying and the weather is extremely hot here! 29/30 degrees every day and very humid. Waves are not the best at all - PE style waves although they do have some when it gets a little bigger. Food is interesting and all in Spanish. Our protein source is mince with potatoes/pasta/rice. Epenyadas are local food here -similar to a samoosa, but they are amazing. Beer is cheap and piña coladas go down well along the beach. Very chilled vibe and atmosphere here and it's a pity they waves aren't great!"
