The Buena Onda Crew at Surf Expo.

Buena Onda had an amazing showing at Surf Expo last week.  We made many new friends and saw a lot of great companies.  We also were able to share the story of the Wayuu People.  It was an opportunity to showcase Wayuu mochilas, Wayuu dresses, and everything else the Wayuu make.  We are so excited for the new boutiques and surf shops that we will be working with this coming year!  A big thanks to all our supporters! 

Nantucket

Nantucket is such a beautiful corner of the world so Buena Onda would like to play a little game.  If you can find this mochila on Nantucket this week you will win it.  All you need to do is find it and tell the person holding it "Be One Of A Kind."  So good luck and let the games begin!

Thank you Megan!

Buena Onda at El Horno

Kevin KennedyComment

Today was amazing!  Buena Onda got to hangout at El Horno, which is a local Wayuu rancheria.  El Horno means "The Oven."  Let me tell you, it was hot!  La Guajira is an extremely dry and arid area of Colombia.  However, we were able to keep cool by swimming in the ocean which was about a kilometer walk from El Horno.  We also got to see how Wayuu Mochilas are made at El Horno.  We would like to give a big thanks to Amelia's family for giving us a wonderful Wayuu experience!

This house is a typical Wayuu design.  It is made of earth and logs.  The La Guarija terrain is extremely arid and dry.  The Wayuu congregate in communities called Wayuu Rancherias.  It is here at the famous Wayuu mochila is made by hand.

Buena Onda and the Mid-West Night Fly

Kevin KennedyComment

Buena Onda was in St. Louis this week for the Mid-West Night Fly Event.  A first year water sports festival that was unlike any other.  It was a perfect event for waterskiers, wakeboarders, and water enthusasts alike.  Not to mention, a great opportunity for Buena Onda to get some exposure on our Wayuu mochilas and products.  Thank you so much Mid-West Night Fly for having us!
