Default Surfing......Costa Rica

Just back from a Surfing trip in Costa Rica (Playa Hermosa). Few snaps of my college son who has no fear of any wave!

Lighting changes quickly in Costa Rica...some are from the evening.

Eric,

You son will value these for a long time. I'd print this one up for him and you. One for sure should be on the mantlepiece or the wall and one n his bedroom to greet him when he come home.

I love the curves in the water. This is a lovely shot and I hope you have more!

Asher

Being able to swim is a must..........and being able to hold your breath for awhile!

Yes he'll love this shot, he's beautifully slotted.

Just in front of him is a nice gnarly water ghost in the foam also. I'm not sure how to draw a line around it but it only takes a small amount of imagination to 'see' it and isn't that what we're good at?!
