Estamos en Ecuador! We have arrived in Ecuador for the 2014 ISA World Junior Championships. It’s such an awesome contest as the whole world sends their top junior surfers to compete. I have met so many amazing surfers from Australia, Brazil, Great Britain and so many other cool countries. I’ll have some fun interviews with these surfers next week!

These first few days have been so HOT! The temperatures are in the 90s and the water is in the 80s – it’s paradise. I have been at the beach most of the days, but in the afternoons we have explored some of the little shops and streets of Salinas, Ecuador.

Everything is bright and colorful here, so these pants were perfect for the breezy evenings and a little crop top which is just about the only thing you want to wear in this humidity. Some strappy sandals or even going barefoot is the way to go here in the tropics. Also, I brought my favorite backpack to fit all my Ecuador finds in as I walked through the markets.
