"Hola Amigos!" from Holly Beck

Hola Amigos!

It's been a while! I am enjoying summer vacation in Nicaragua - no new retreats til October, yay! I've been getting a lot more waves myself without having to put energy into helping girls improve their surfing skills. Stoked!

My Rusty boards have been working amazingly well and I put together a little video analysis of my top 3 boards with some cool surf footage mixed in.

I've been working over the last two years with a non-profit called Waves of Hope which is run by a couple friends of mine. We've been trying to promote education in the local communities and to lobby the government to green-light the construction of a high school. Currently the only educational opportunity for kids in the area after grade 6 is attending school only on Sundays. We've made a lot of progress. You can check it out here:

I recently got engaged! Yay! You can see a bit of what our life is like here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1xIry9ENE8

Finally, we're also working with Waves of Hope on a sea turtle conservation project. Baby turtles are the cutest things ever!

Thanks for the support!
Enjoy the rest of your summer!!!
