A Slice of Life | Weekend in Review: Malibu Boardriders’ Call to the Wall

malibu-longboards
This past weekend, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to surf in the Malibu Boardriders Club 23rd Annual Call to the Wall surf contest, at the infamous Malibu Surfrider Beach. I have surfed in this event, a Coalition of Surfing Clubs contest for the past several years, representing my club: The Swamis Surfing Association. This year, I was thrilled to make the finals, but the real fun was had hanging out on the beach with some incredibly talented friends. (more…)

I’m sure you all know by now that I’m a big fan of watermelon. But, I do have a sweet tooth for other flavors of natures candy, and I love nothing more than when they are combined into a delicious fruit salad. (more…)

A Slice Of Life | Panamá Guest Series by Stephanie Schechter

Post Two645
During my spring break from UC Santa Barbara, my family and I traveled to Playa Venao, Panamá! My family, including my parents and my older brother (who attends UCLA), loves to travel to places that are generally off the beaten path. We always aim to find uncrowded surf destinations with interesting culture, and Panamá definitely fit this description! The capital city, La Cuidad de Panamá is only a six-hour direct flight from LAX – which was really convenient! However, after flying to Panamá, it was over seven hours of complicated driving – and a few wrong turns – to get to Pedasí, the town nearest to Playa Venao. While there are several other excellent surfing locations in Panamá on both the Pacific and the Atlantic coasts, we chose to go to Playa Venao because there are no large resorts nearby, and the surf is known to be fun, uncrowded, and consistent. Upon arrival to La Ciudad de Panamá, we realized that Panamá is slightly more modernized than other countries we have seen in Central America, such as Nicaragua and Costa Rica. However, once out of the city, the Panamanian countryside was very similar to that of its neighboring countries. The house we stayed in, named La Casa Mango, was also reminiscent of other Central American surf lodging. La Casa Mango was almost entirely open air, nestled into a jungle on the hill overlooking Playa Venao. There were plenty of strange insects to be seen, along with tropical birds, geckos, iguanas, frogs, and three varieties of monkeys!

Stephanie-1
Meet SWELL’s newest guest blogger…Stephanie Schechter! You might know her as the “Watermelon Girl” if you’re social media savvy, but there’s more to this San Diego-raised water baby than her fruit-themed Insta-personality.
So why do we thing she’s so…SWELL?
* She’s a true beach baby. She began competing and picking up sponsors while most of us were still picking up Lego pieces.
* The girl has style, by sea and by land!
* She had us at “Watermelon.”

Look forward to travels, cross-steps, and, of course, all things watermelon, with Stephanie on her new SWELL Series, Slice of Life….
