Erin Swain: La Parguera Session

Since my last post, I've had a few sessions at Shacks and Montones. I have been doing okay, but not really progressing. I realized that the deep ocean at Montones and shallow reef at Shacks were making me nervous and keeping me from working on anything that would make me lose my board.

I usually travel somewhere warm during the off season but after so many years traveling non stop I decided I would give my homespot a try so I could spend some time at home and enjoy it. I was really surprised with how good the conditions were. This was definitely a really good choice.
