Diony & his crew at Funeral Point

After many years of traveling the world Diony has been working a number of plans recently to rediscover the magic that can be found a little closer to home. Isn't funny how we rush around and around but sometimes miss the gems that lie in front of us!

Funeral Point - what a beautiful location...

"The new season is just starting here in the Southern Caribbean so everyone is quite desperate for some swell, Margarita is just above the equator and enjoys good climate year around but good swells here are not easy to get since we have all the islands blocking us north and east from us, so you got to be on top of the forecast!

We headed north west to this spot called Funeral Point, (discovered by my friend Carlos Vasquez and a friend of his called El Megatronico) the name doesn’t sound very attractive but I can assure you that it was the contrary, super peaceful and completely isolated in the cactus field of the dessert! We did not even have telephone signal incase of an emergency! It felt great to totally disconnect with the world, we arrived at dawn before the sun came out with a few good friends, Deivis Paternina (Pro Freestyler), Edwing Fernandez (Free Surfer) and Reinaldo Aparicio (Kite Surfer and Free Surfer) I was the first one to get into the water, the surf was epic, long perfect peeling glassy left and rights!

The wind started to fill in early at 9am since it was a bit stormy so I jumped on my new AHD Sea Lion Pro SUP to get a fewwaves before it got too windy! At 10am I was already on the water wave sailing with Deivis, it was his first time on the waves here, he had a funny style but it was great to see one of the El Yaque boys wanting to learn how to wave ride, it was a little side on with occasional gust to do a couple jumps and to hit a few lips!

I’m really looking forward going to Los Roques very soon! Just waiting on the catamaran that will be taking us there! Conditions are looking great for the next days, Los Roques probably going to be mast High or more, hope to get some conditions here on Margarita also!" Diony Guadagnino V69
