DAROB your such a dirty ho...nice shot skim that all day.

How were the tides, Eric said when the tide drops out you can see lots of big trees in the line up and shore break?

ive taken so many surf/skim trips already its insane...but EVERY time i go to costa rica...i fall inlove with it all overrr again

its just such a STOKE....every second of the day

ure heart has no downtime....its pumping when ure charging waist/chest skim...pumping when ure charging 6-8 ft surf.....pumping when ure telling the storys getting fcked up at night...and pumping while ure sleeping, and dreaming about ure wake up next morning...(NOT trying to sound corny DALE!)

THats fukn awesome bro...I am heading down there in a few months when he gets settled. They, I mean Eric and his buddy are in the process of opening an Americana style eatery down there. The place will be the only place with more than chicken an rice on the menu.

How much pollo did you eat down there?

1000 colons = 2$?

Eric tells me the skim is so knarly when he went to check out the new spot a month ago it wasnt even makable, too many rocks, and big fkn trees just rolling up and down the beach.

Did you see any Salty Water Crocs??? They got big ones I hear.

DaRob
06-14-2007, 10:11 AM
no crocs...

but i did surf a few spotts on a river mouth....and i dont know whats worse....reef or river debree(sp?)

BDirty
06-14-2007, 01:21 PM
Hmm, Rivermouths in Costa contain all kinds of creatures....quite interesting sir.

Eric mentioned walking over this huge bridge looking down a 200 foot cliff to the river where like 15 foot crocs chill not far from the ocean at all.

Salty's are no joke....

What do you mean?

06-14-2007, 05:58 PM
i think he means walking over rocks/reefs/oysters that tear you to pieces. by water he meant walking thru it.

the pics are awesome. looks like a private paradise. All around a good time.

DaRob
06-14-2007, 07:51 PM
no...has nothing to do with reef or any of that

what looks to be a pond....or just water that was left behind as the tide changed, and never made it back out to sea

...is really a river mouth...with all sorts of Bacteria and nasty fungi....

the dudes feet were litterally rotting (local fisherman fulltime, pond hopper for the touries part time)...proof enough for me NOT to touch that water
