2021 has good vibes

It is kind of silly to expect that one’s situation could change as simple as the old year is gone and the new year enters the scene. Still, like everyone else, I see January as an opportunity to gain strength and keep going on.
2021 couldn’t have started better, I have received the visit of two amazing families for surfing lessons and this was perfect to recharge my batteries.

 

From Italy

Paolo, Vera, and Isabella came to Santa Teresa to have lessons with me for some days. I have to say it was a kind of odd experience, in a good way, for me. We spent time dancing, chilling, singing, joking and surfing of course ;).

I always try to give a relaxed ambient to my lessons, being stiff or quite nervous is not good for surfing. These guys just brought all the chill Italian lifestyle with them, so for a change, I ended being the “serious girl” in the group :D.

They were carefully listening to my instructions and follow all the advice I always give in my lessons, in no time they were taming the waves like professionals. As a teacher, I can not ask for better students.

Isabella had a Polaroid camera and took a photo of me, she is a really good photographer, I look very cool. I appreciate the photo, Polaroid photos always have this nostalgic feeling around them.

 

From France

From France, I had the grateful surprise of receiving the visit of an old friend of mine, Anne with her two beautiful sons, Theo and Noe.
Both kids received instructions and quickly they were surfing on the foam (the shallow waters). Seeing them made me remember those days when I was taking my first steps as a surfer.
Thank you for the visit Anne, good memories! Hope to see you again soon!

I am sure this 2021 will be better, I am not talking about economics, the pandemic, or politics, I talk about family. This year will be embracing our loved ones all we can because we have learned about the value of life.

I will be here in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica, no matter if you come alone, with friends or family, I am ready to be your surf instructor and your friend.
