Super Supers

Food shopping was a triiiiiip. 
Very simplified.  You only have a couple of choices.
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were a staple.
Mangoes, bananas, papaya and pineapple.
A pack of Imperial & we're done.

Underwater Patterns

I love the way water bends sunlight rays. Such a beautiful pattern.

Hello Costa Rica.

After a long red-eye flight, we finally arrived in San Jose, Costa Rica on the Fourth of July. Tired, but stoked we found our way to the small bed-and-breakfast where we were staying for a few days.  I wanted to see San Jose and meet up with some shaper friends at Allocean Surfboards.  Had a great time navigating the city by bus--everyone spoke Spanish and only Spanish, the money was weird, and we had no clue where we were going.  It was wild.
 In San Jose, the food consisted of mainly of beans & rice, fried chicken, fried chicken, and pastries from the local pandarias. It was rough finding fresh vegetables and fruit.  I didn't enjoy that.
  I was able to meet up with some friends who own/run Allocean and it was a pleasure visiting the shop and seeing their new shaping machine!!
  By the weekend, we were ready to get to the beach.

Off we go.
