It was Christmas morning when I fully understood the essence of PURA VIDA. I was in Montezuma, sitting in the water on my board, and surfing at Playa Grande. The rhythm of the waves, the heat of the sun and the cheers of my companions made for the perfect holiday and one I'll never forget.
We had an amazing week of surfing thanks to Young Vision Surf School. Each day the instructors challenged us a bit more by getting us on shorter boards and bringing us to bigger water. I managed to beach myself a few times and get some shots. Enjoy!
