I am Laura an almost 50 year old -not so great- Longboarder from Uruguay. I had a rough few months that kept me out of the water since the end of November, but during the 2 weeks I was able to surf this summer, my friends and I, registered for a Longboard Festival in Punta del Este, which turned out to be a qualifier for the ISA World Longboard Championship. I debated wether to attend, as I am not as good as I should be to compete with the top Longboarders, but being handed this oportunity at my age, is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I also couldn't afford the trip myself at the moment it came, but my friends and community helped me get funding. And here I am registering for the event!. I started surfing at 40 years old but have been taking surf photographs in La Paloma since 2006. I am known as Lau from Fotos de Acá (by the local surf community). @fotosdeaca is my facebook/instagram handle for my photography. See you at the Event!!!!
