The reason I love traveling is that the people you meet while on the road tend to impact your life in more ways than can be imagined.
I meet Monica 15 years ago in northern Brazil. I was picking up a friend at the airport in Salvador when we meet and later when I saw her again while surfing I told her I was going to Itacare in a few days and asked her if she wanted to join me.
She said yes.
We lost touch and a few weeks ago she emailed me after a 15-year hiatus.
In this episode we speak for the first time in 15 years; we talk about the pandemic in Chile, surfing in Sri Lanka, Peru, and other fun places. Monica tells the story of leaving her job as a doctor to pursue her passion for surfing.

Looking for something to do during quarantine? Why not shape your first surfboard.
We go through the tools and software you need and also I walk you through each step of the process.
If you love surfboards as much as I do then you'll love shaping them even more.
