Roxy girls shine bright

i took a little time off last weekend to see my family, friends in the city and to hang out with my fellow roxy girls in Zambales because the surf is up! yes our surfing season up in the north is banging!

am so glad i made this trip as i havent really hung out with the other girls yet. and to tell you honestly everyone is aaaaaawesome! in our own unique ways we are all roxy girls, agatha - our little skater from bagiuo is just cute, patty our teacher slash surfer, brei our fashion magazine extraordinaire and surfer, bea our surfer chick, joanne our wakeboarder and me our kite girl! such a fun boardgirls group i must say. here are some snaps of the trip, i miss zambales i havent been here for maybe 3-4 years and it has changed for the good. i can say that surfers are really taking care of this beach and there is also no trash in sight! a lot of new artworks also came about, and i saw a twin sister of our artwork in kasbah by the amazing deejae paeste!

for now am stoked to be back home but had a greaaaat weekend surfing and seeing familiar faces. its also great to see some of my girls i havent seen in years!
like abi, anna aldover and isa! my grade school best friend! she's still awesome as ever and we had fun goofing around in the line up and taking photos as usual!

i also realized i havent written anything remotely interesting in this blog due to a lack of motivation and interesting stuff to write about, but seeing all these girls ripping with me, it makes my heart smile :)

to all the girls out there that are shredding, continue what you are doing! your great and roxy is always there to make sure you look cute while shredding hehehehe

pace, love and good vibrations

Change is Good

2012 has been both equally good and bad to me i must say.

A broken heart, a dislocated shoulder, a major concussion, etc

but i was able to travel to a lot of places and met a lot of great people that inspired me to be 
stay stronger than ever.

I had a great time revisiting San Francisco and see old buddies that now reside there, as much as they say that they are now used to the cold, i know they are in denial.


The Triple S was a great experience altogether both in kiting and in the general boardsports culture.
I feel so at home with all these people around me! super fun to hang out with too!!!!

Greece for my second season there was also great!
I was able to explore paros more and felt like it is my homespot too that i actually cried that i had to leave.

Being back in Boracay after a very rough 2011 season due to a lot of things, now it's different.

I can say that i have learned so many things this year about me and what i really want to do.

I was able to find people that support me and my vision fully which makes me feel like am not crazy or something.LOL

First things first,

I'll do something that will bring me back to my visual roots.
After 7 years i was able to pick up a brush and paint again.
(although now am again to busy to do so)

Learn to say no.


Do what you love to do so it doesn't feel like work at all.

Never give in to peer pressure, unless you really want to anyways

Don't be shy to be individualistic.
I went kting in my tutu on new year's day and it was funnnn!

Never take anything to seriously, you will get wrinkles.

Spread love




Happy New Year People

Check out some of the photos from the first sunrise of 2013 through our windy kite beach
on lowtide/superflat water and ofcourse being with your lovely island family.

I love you Boracay <3 nbsp="nbsp" p="p">
Thank You for everything!
