SURF COUCH AND OWNER
Surfing has taught me much more than I ever thought.
It creates a connection with nature and with yourself, it is like meditation in that it is a sport that keeps your mind clear. One of my goals in teaching is to give people a new outlet to clear their mind and body through surf. I enjoy sharing the knowledge I have and try to learn from everyone.
As a kid I discovered that I love the beach and nature so I studied tourism.
At NCRSS I was taught how satisfying is to be able to communicate to others how to connect with nature through surfing.
We have an incredible team, it is so cool to have the opportunity to learn from each other everyday and surf with people from all over the world, that makes me feel fortunate.
See you in the water!
WANT TO SURF WITH US?
I am from Nosara and have been surfing for 9 years in different Costa Rican breaks.
I have been teaching for about 5 years and it is something really like to do.
As a teenager I started to surf with friends and it became my life style.
I was born in Puntarenas. but I grew up in Nosara and started surfing when I was 14 years old.
Since the first time I had my first "ride" on a wave, I decided I wanted to share that experience with everyone who want to give it a try.
The reason why I like to teach is to be able to pass that knowledge that I have got through the years as a surfer.
Let's go surfing!
I grew up living between Nantucket and Nosara, I got family in both places and I am Maikol’s cousin.
I learned to surf here in Guiones beach when I was a kid and started to take it more seriously when I was in college. I have taught surfing for two years now, both in Nosara and on Nantucket, and one of my favorite feelings is noticing when the motions click for someone who is learning. Seeing the joy on someone's face after a great surf session is what keeps me coming back day after day to keep teaching my passion to the next generation of surfers!
