This week I am jet setting on a surf adventure down to South America with plans to explore the beautiful coastline and cities of Chile. The moment our plane touches down we begin our nonstop endeavor, traveling in a van down the coast of Chile. Not only do we have the opportunity to surf the best waves, but we have also organized events for the locals with the goal of encouraging and helping the people of Chile. We are holding several surf camps and have plans to leave the sand behind for a snowboard trip in the Andes. We are in for some exciting adventures!

It is currently winter in Chile, so this made it a little challenging when packing, as we are in the middle of summer here in SoCal . Luckily I was able to find some awesome styles to throw in my bag, along with other great outfits for everything from beach days with highs of 50 degrees, to snow days with lows of 20 degrees. Read on for the complete packing list…60738_500148606731227_1240042149_n

Here is my list of “must bring” items for Chile:

* My Passport and board– could not get very far without either of these
* Lip Balm and Sunnies– for the dry winds and long days spent in the sun
* Shoe Picks : boots and converse high tops- so I am ready for hiking or walking through rain and snow.
* Clothing Picks:
Lounge pants
Camo jacket
Jeans
Thermals
Graphic tees
Fringe sweater
Beach hats
Scarf
Swimsuits (even though I will spend most of my time in a wetsuit)
