Hi - I write and publish surf travel guides, including The Surfer's Guide to Costa Rica & SW Nicaragua and The Surfer's Guide to Baja. (www.TheSurfersGuides.com) The Surfer's Guide to Costa Rica was first "published" in 1995. The quotes are there because the first edition was printed at Kinkos and not really promoted. Bank Wright of Mountain & Sea was the only distributor. Today, both have been the best-selling surf guides for either region and continue to offer more detail and content than any others. Not much in the way of photos...there are none...but that's what the magazines do. The Surfer's Guide to Costa Rica & SW Nicaragua is now available on iTunes and Kindle, too. Baja coming soon. It's been fun!
On which destinations & travel topics can you advise members especially well?
Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Baja
What destinations are you most interested in learning about?
More surf spots in Central America
Other travel / language expertise?
Motorcycles. I have 3 Ducatis and a DR650es I'm rigging for traveling with a surfboard. Check my blog at: http://surfmotoblog.com
