SURF COACH 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.
Surfing is a big part of (maybe even the biggest) my life. I’ve been surfing for 8 years and still learning more and more everyday. I love the way I connect and feel with the ocean once I’m in the water, it calmes me and my mind. I’m also a surf instructor, I love being able to share my passion with other people and show them how beautiful this sport is.
I surf since I was 9 years old, ever since surfing changed my life, everything I do involves surfing. I have been competing a lot in recent years and now professionally. I like to travel and be able to represent my country, those are things that I always dreamed of. I moved to Nosara because I like the waves and Nosara CR Surf School supports me in all they can.
I love sharing and teaching surfing, it is therapy for people and even for me, God blessed my life and I want to share surfing with you!
WANT TO SURF WITH US?
My first contact with surfing was when I was 15 years old, and from there I fell in love with it. Surfing for me is not just a sport, it is a connection with nature, with my body. Being in the water is feeling alive, each wave is a dose of happiness! I love being able to teach people something that gives me so much love and pleasure. And when they receive that message and share that connection is when I feel like I did my job well.
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!
