When there is no waves in San Pancho.

It's interesting how the vibe in a surftown like San Pancho changes when there's abselotely no waves for a couple of days. In San Pancho there's a lot of ambitious surfers, that pretty much surfs, eats and repeats every day and work when they have to. A lot of the surfers here are locals, or from one of the small towns close by. There's also a few travellers, some that are staying and some that are leaving. Theese guys (and some girls) are athletes, surf comes first. And the two words I hear the most around here is "buenas olas" wich means "good waves".

With no surf it's obvious that people get a little bored and restless, me included. It's not only that it's small in San Pancho, it's small everywhere around here right now. So there's no help in driving around looking for better waves.

There is no limits for how much fun you can have in the sand..

When there is no waves it's fun to see how people have to find other ways to use some of their energy, just so much creativity with finding other options for outdoor activitys! People are playing on the beach, swimming, diving, rockclimbing, skateboarding and many other things.

Great place for rock climbing on the other side of the beach.

Last but not least, perfect oppourtunity to have a "fiesta". Last night was the ending of the "San Pancho days", a big party that have lasted for nine days, and pretty much everyone in town was out until early morning, dansing banda and drinking tequila. Me included! In Mexico you just have to "fiesta" sometimes, loose that balance. It's just such a big part of the culture. Today I am planning on rinsing last night of with a capoeira class, a yoga class, a big beverage and hopefully a sunset surf!  Buenas olas por favor!
