So we finally managed to pull ourselves away from Peru, much later than expected, and heading north things started to become a little greener. We had earmarked Playas as a good spot for the surf, and it turned out trumps for us there. We got some lovely uncrowded rights (waves that break from right to left) for a change, much to myself and Edīs delight, our first since Lima. Feeley, the only goofy footer among us wasnīt impressed! Delighted.

Edīs buddy Rosey joined us too, myself and feeley didnīt know what to expect of our new travel buddy, but she fitted right in among the banter and slagging, fair play to her. God knows youīd want a thick skin to hang around with us! Sheīd kick all our asses out in the water too, so she normally had the last laugh.

We stayed with this cool family of Chileans, and had the run of the place from 6am for the early surf, till we fell in the door late at night.

Playas itself is a seaside town on the south west coast of Ecuador, and has miles of different right hand spots all along its northern shore line, so if one isnīt working or is too crowed, just hop along to the next point for a look!

We stayed here for 5 days before the swell dropped off, which was signal enough for us to be heading off for Montinita, a popular seaside holiday destination for Ecuadorians.
