I do surf but not real well. I've always been involved with board sports - wakeboarding, skateboarding, snowboarding, and surfing. Just picked up a new 5'11" tri-fin fish over Memorial day while down in FL, it's super fun.

Headed to Costa Rica in early September for a few days but land-locked in UT means surfing only happens a few times a year.

Yep...always check the wave forecast before I make weekend riding plans. Been surfing for 20 years - learned in Maryland, lived in FL for 6 years, and now Santa Cruz is my home break for the last 10 years. Some years I surf more and others I ride more. This year I'm definitely riding more.

After the heyday 90's for DH, things got a bit wierd with the 50 lb bikes and all so I spent more time surfing. Now, DH seems to be on the upswing again and I'm definitely more stoked on it now.

That's funny, but when I was in CR 2 years ago, I met guys from Utah, Colorado, Pennsylvania...all of these landlocked states. I was a bit surprised...thought I was heading out on a Centro surf adventure where only hardcore surfers go and it turned out to be like Disneyland. No offense - it was really cool and had a great time.

Next year we're going to Nicaragua to get away from the crowds, if it's not too late. Peru, Chile the year after.

Yeah, there was a great article in Surfer's Journal a couple years ago about Maine. Talk about brain freeze, ice cream headaches, etc....I don't miss those days.

I hear ya. My bro in law is a core surfer type. He's been to Costa Rica a few times and says the same. Their crew is headed to Panama this year to get off the path a bit. But I'm sure I'll have a great time there, we're way more chill on the surfing. Besides, did HI twice last year so need something different this year.

just got back from the annual surf trip. Before the trip it's always on my mind not to hurt myself riding, and since we ride year round it's good to tone it down and work on technique and then take a month off the bike to let those nagging injuries heal. Sure enough, got back and third ride I slammed the ground hard, feels like I have internal injuries now...

People always wonder why surfers from Hawaii need to travel to surf....here's a couple photos from the trip, 2 of us out....





need to try central america someday, does it get this good?

I'm afraid if I go to Indo I won't want to come back. Those pictures didn't do anything to change this belief. It looks like you scored it good.
