We are Girl Bus Vibes:
Girl Bus Vibes is unapologetic, badass femininity in the wild and on the road. We are not afraid to sleep outside under the stars, paddle out to an empty wave or blaze our own trail. We are ladysliders who live every moment to the fullest.
Over the next two weeks, we will be road tripping 1,200 miles from Santa Cruz, California to Tofino, Canada. Follow our journey as we cruise the West Coast in Lady Liberty, Annie's mint green 1985 VW bus. Our route? A zig zag search for the perfect camp site, empty waves and the pure bliss of living life in the moment.
Our final destination is the Rip Curl Pro Tofino, where Gretchen is competing in the Canadian surfing championships at Cox Bay. (Yes, she's already a little bit nervous.)
Gretchen is drawn to telling stories that matter. Homeschooled by hippy surf parents, she eventually followed her passion for the ocean to become a surf journalist. When she's not working as Surfine's senior creative editor, Gretchen can be found on a surfboard, in a yoga studio or rock climbing around Southern California. She is the creator the adventure blog Wild Compass.
LUIS SOLANO AKA LA
