Born on November 15, 1956 in Puntarenas, lives in San Isidro of Puntarenas, known as “Nanán.” Began surfing at age 18 in 1974. I began surfing when I took a friend of mine in my car to Boca de Barranca to practice and he loaned me a board and I learned there and liked it a lot.

 

There were many good things like all of the friendships. One bad thing was when my friend Jorge Reyes “Koki” died in a traffic accident. The best was the contact with nature, peace and tranquility. Surfers back then were truly given over to the sport. Surfers today are more commercialized and fictitious. I went to places like Mexico, the United States, Africa, Puerto Rico, and New Zealand. They are well organized from their development.

 

I participated in various tournaments and when I was 30 I worked as a qualified judge, nationally and internationally. I retired from surfing at age 38. I rode waves for 20 year. Today I have my own businesses. I would tell a young surfer to study, do the sport you like the most and stay away from drugs. For me surfing has been the golden years of my life. That is how it was and it was the best time of my life.

 

The moral values of the organizers, the loyalty to the competition without rings and a better infrastructure in the work at the time for organizing a competitive event; this sport has lost a lot of its peak for not having good organization at the national level and the incentive for the athletes and competitors.
