RODRIGO CRESPO APESTEGUI
- BEGIN SURFING 1971 -
Born May 1, 1954 in San José, lives in Guachipelin, Escazú, known in Surfing as “Macho,” began surfing at age 17 in 1971, has been surfing for 37 years. I started surfing because I had a farm near Boca de Barranca and I began there.
I bought my first board from Salazar. How good it was back then, we did not use leashes. The best was to surf perfect waves at Doña Ana without people. Our country is touristy, popular and commercial. My thoughts and feelings as a Surfer: enjoy your time, let’s not be selfish, let’s teach others that know less, use the energy of the sport for spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical growth.
Back then the Costa Rican surfers were kind and generous, compared to the foreigners. Today’s surfers have been contaminated with selfishness and the sensation of lacking that the foreigners bring. I have surfed many places but I do not know many new places. I have surfed in the USA, Nicaragua, Panamá, San Salvador and Hawaii.

In California is it very common to see aggressive surfers fighting among each other for a wave. I still ride waves and work in agriculture at a farm in Boca de Barranca. I would tell a young surfer to manage the amount of energy the sport gives and use it with wisdom.
