Brazil was still warm, sunny, crowded (at times), monolingual and windy. It was very strong so we did what we always do and saved some energy for the better/lighter days. We also had a fair bit of the thick purple juice (Açaí) and finished the trip very very sore.
We blew a chunk of the budget on building a handrail. It didn’t work as we expected. Getting it down to the lagoon was a mission. Plus we realized how hard a handrail actually is. Got zero clips on that. However that wasn’t our goal for the trip, so we changed directions and focused on freestyle. Our freestyle was rusty after riding the park the whole summer. Took us more than ever to get back to it. Even battled with a few little injuries on the way.
On the last few days with time tickling away we decided to make a plan. haha! Nothing went according to it. We ended up doing our thing and making decisions along the way.
The first trip was a success. I guess now its official and we've got something underway. Still a long time to go but its shaping up nicely. We all have some clips, the vibes are great and we are stoked. Just have to keep it going.
