Born in Habana, Cuba on August 10, 1956. Lives in Tortuguero Limón. Known in surfing as Sansó. Begin surfing at age 18 in 1974. I surfed for 21 years but about 10 years ago I stopped surfing because of the amount of people there are now. The idea to go surfing was in 1974. People from the neighborhood skated and little by little we started to surf. I bought my first board from Cundino, a local from the port. The best from back then was to discover and surf alone with two other friends at Roca Bruja, Callejones, Playa Negra and Playa Hermosa for almost 5 years. It is incredible the amount of places there are in our country, but there are so many people to the point that ticos (Costa Ricans) are the minority at the beaches.

 

My thinking and feeling as a Surfer is that there are no words and nothing that compares to the relationship with the ocean. Surfers back then were more passive, classic wave riders. Surfers today are more the spectacle and a style. I have surfed many places; places have appeared that I had never heard of before. I have only surfed here in Costa Rica and I know the people from my time, some Venezuelans and some “Gringos,” but no one in particular. I had the fortune of participating in the 1st surf tournament organized by Mario Sotela. I think I finished in 8th place. I retired from riding waves when I was 40 years old. I was not accustomed to so many people. After stopping surfing I began competing in speed boating here in Costa Rica and in Mexico. I race go-carts when time allows. I would tell a young surfer that surfing is more than just a style; it is the true relationship between one and the ocean. That is what is important to enjoy and respect.
