pretty surreal, but: travelling to all the great wavesailing destinations I haven’t been to yet such as Matanzas and Topocalma in Chile, Pacasmayo in Peru, Punta San Carlos in Mexico, Sumbawa in Indonesia, Thurso in Scotland, Ponta Preta in Cabo Verde

The future:

stay healthy and keep up this lifestyle as long as possible
