Morbihan Gulf Festival

The Morbihan Gulf Festival

Feeling tarnished from all the work this last summer season, I decided to take a vacation this year outside of Costa Rica and I chose my homeland France as the destination to visit. I was invited by a friend of mine to Monks Island in Brittany.
I arrived just in time to enjoy the Festival of Morbihan. This event is about thousands of sailboats visiting the island in the middle of the Gulf of Morbihan. This island happens to be Monks Island.

SUP, standing board paddling for seniors

SUP, standing board paddling for seniors

Recently, I had a SUP tour in the Pochote estuary with three amazing people, Claudia, Elizabeth, and Scott.
The timing couldn’t be better since I wanted to talk about how paddleboarding can be the right water activity for seniors. All of them were over 65 years old and without much experience in SUP, they were handling the rowing easily in a few minutes.

2022:What happened?

2022 just went away some days ago. I’m going to miss it because a lot of cool stuff happened. I went to serve overseas, found a nice spot for my SUP tours, and met many nice people. 
I expect 2023 to be a great year, but it will be hard for the new year to compete with the one that just passed. 
I will share a glimpse of what happened to me this last year. then I’ll share with you what are my projects for this new year. I hope you like it.

What green season means for Nicoya surfing

What green season means for Nicoya surfing scene

How the weather conditions and the seasons affect the surfing scene is a really interesting topic. Every surf instructor should be aware of the conditions of the beach after a storm or a long period without rain. Local weather conditions are not enough but checking these at a regional level is important because swells formed away from land inside the ocean.

A summer season I will not forget

A summer season I will not forget

The first rains are coming this month of May and I got the message: the summer season is gone.
The green season is just around the corner and with it, chirping birds come back to the mornings. Insects get out of the ground after being buried for months. Fresh afternoons with drinking tea while rains. Cold nights watching TV while being sheltered inside a blanket. I’m sure you get the idea.

17 kilometers east of Santa Teresa there is a small and colorful town called Montezuma. The town is located between the beach and the river of the same name.
It is a lively place with restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, stores among others. You can see many people walking down the streets, it is the best way to move over town since the streets are narrow and the transit can be slow.
Also, there are tour operators who offer a taxi boat to Jaco beach and tours to Isla Tortuga.

Green Season in Santa Teresa

All the photos of this article were taken by Lila Hasson, kudos to her for such beautiful photos

The Green Season is already here in Nicoya. The first rains wet the dry earth and everything in the zone becomes greener, way greener. You can hear the chirping of birds because is their mating season.
Also, flowers bloom everywhere as an act of gratitude to Mother Earth for the much-needed freshwater. The “Cortez Amarillo” tree bloom with really beautiful and vibrant yellow flowers which could make any painter jealous. The flowers have small red lines near the center giving a lively contrast with the vibrant yellow.

The Surf Ambassy

The Surf Embassy

With every year passing here on Santa Teresa, I start to feel this hidden paradise in Costa Rica should be the next United Nations headquarters. Maybe It will sound like a joke to you but when I received visits from so many places around the world I really feel like that. At least the Nicoya Peninsula is way cozier than any big city.


This time I received a very beautiful and nice couple of Ukraine, Vlada, and Albert. I was impressed by Vlada’s name and did a little research to know that means “Rule”. I can not think of a better word to describe her, while offshore she was nice and kind, she totally ruled the board once on the water as if the board was capable of hearing the thoughts of its ruler.
