SATURDAY CHRONICLES // CHANTAL CACHELA
Can you remember 1 or 2 people who helped inspire you and helped you to grow?
Definitely my parents, both travellers, windsurfers, ocean lovers and a huge inspiration to me.
What is the biggest lesson you learned and who taught you this lesson?
Slow down, listen to your body, be grateful, be present.
I tore my ACL last year and that’s been the most challenging experience of my life so far, I’ve learned so much from it. Being unable to walk for one month, totally dependent, a long and expensive rehabilitation has taught me so much.
What was your best birthday party?
When I was a little girl my mum used to prepared the best birthday parties ever, with a massive cake and so many games.
One of my favorites from my adulthood was when i turned 30 in Byron Bay. My parents came all the way from Spain and they surprised me with an amazing bbq at Wategos Beach with all my friends. We surfed all day and watched the sunset. So memorable!
How would you define growth?
It’s a constant development of yourself. The process of become the best version of yourself.
What are you most content with about yourself?
My growth during this past year. How grateful I’m after my injury and how much I listen to my body. Also how much I enjoy just being alive and surfing.
Is there a motto that you live by? One that always sticks with you?
Which 3 countries are on your bucket list?
I’m pretty happy where I’m at the moment in Bali.
I’m trying to stick to the present. If I could go somewhere I guess that will be home to visit my beloved ones (canary islands), Tahiti and Byron bay.
What do you still want to learn?
So much.... Self development, new languages, kundalini yoga..
