Costa Rica

sunny

Ok, I know it's been a while but hey, better late than never! Below you will see some pretty cool pictures from Costa Rica. I headed down there with my buddy Mike and surfed twice a day almost every day we were there. It was an epic adventure to say the least. Check out some of these pics:

Here's Mike and I enjoying life in Costa Rica

This is the tree house we stayed in for a couple of nights a little north of Santa Teresa

The sunset at Playa Carmen. This random dude stole my hat for the picture

When there was no surf Mike and I rented 4X4's and took them everywhere around the peninsula of Guanacaste. From Santa Teresa to Mal Pais to Montezuma (Where we hiked to a nearby waterfall) then back through Cobano.

After 4 days of surfing Playa Hermosa (which had huge 6-10 foot waves), Santa Teresa, Playa Carmen and Mar Azul. We headed north to Playa Guiones also known as Nosara or the Projects according to the Americans who live down there.

From Nosara we went farther north toTamarindo and Playa Grande. We made the long trek so that we could get on a boat to take us to the infamous Witch's Rock and Ollie's point which are two amazing breaks in all of Costa Rica.

After finding a boat we had a drink and watched the sunset at Tamarindo.

The next day we finally realized our goal and got on a boat to Witch's Rock and Ollies point.

Here's me and La Roca Bruja

The captain also warned us that a crocodile was known to appear in the lineup from time to time. Fortunatley we didn't run into that croc!

Then we took the boat to Ollie's point and surfed the best right ever!!!

Ok, that's all the pictures I can put up this month. In early September my final post will be regarding my adventure to the Grand Canyon with my buddy Pete and the Byss (AKA Rob, our favorite Leprechaun friend).

Till then, Pura Vida!
