Chispy is a 10-year-old boy who lives in the poorest slum of Cartagena, Colombia. He shares a double bed with the rest of his family and doesn't go to school. It's early outside and Chispy wakes up to go surfing. The sea is flat in Cartagena, so Chispy travels to Tayrona in order to reach his waves.

Chispy tiene 10 años y vive en uno de los barrios más pobres de Cartagena, Colombia. Comparte una cama doble con el resto de su familia y no va al colegio. Es muy temprano y Chispy madruga para ir a surfear. Como el mar está plano en Cartagena, Chispy decide ir hasta Tayrona en busca de sus olas.
