I’m never super excited when my alarm goes off at 5:00 am on Wednesday mornings, I like mornings, but it’s really early. By the time the entire family has arrived at the beach at 5:45 for the TIDE Academy Morning Surf Practice, the cobwebs are gone and I’m so grateful to be out there enjoyingKeep Reading!

The kids wrote this song with their friends Logan and Macy last week. Just had to share as nothing makes me happier than the kids playing music.Keep Reading!

As we were driving to Lola’s our goal was to shoot another quick surf video, but upon arrival, the swell was MASSIVE so the kids decided to boogey board, play in the sand and enjoy a relaxing afternoon instead. This is a quick snapshot of that afternoon at Avellanas.Keep Reading!

We’ve been back in Tamarindo for about a month now and it’s been quite a whirlwind thus far! Things are finally slowing down just a little bit, so I thought I’d drop a quick update. We had two weeks of visitors as well as three weeks of very good friends in town, so we’ve beneKeep Reading!

It’s been quite a while since we’ve posted anything about SNOW on this site. We’ve been very grateful to have spent two weekends this Winter in the Colorado mountains, it’s been a long time since we’ve skied and played in the snow. Our first trip was to Keystone, and while it was amazing, we didKeep Reading!

The kids went to an amazing school while living in Costa Rica for the Spring Semester of 2013 called the TIDE Academy (website | facebook). As a part of their community outreach program, the school teamed up with another local school to create a beautiful mural on an old concrete wall in the center ofKeep Reading!

It’s been about 6 months since we left Costa Rica this year and I’m finally getting around to sifting through some of the video footage we took. This was one of my favorite evenings in Costa Rica this spring, the Villa Real Rodeo. Rodeo season is an amazing time around Costa Rica, these rodeos travelKeep Reading!

November in Costa Rica is a magical time, everything is green, you might have a little rain and the weather is calm and cooler. It’s probably our favorite time of the year to be in Costa Rica. 2012 was no exception when we came down to Costa Rica with friends to celebrate Thanksgiving. The weekKeep Reading!

Rincon de La Vieja Here is the next segment from our feature length presentation, this time from Rincon de la Vieja (the Old Woman’s Corner). It was a full day of adventure from Sun up to Sun down. What a perfect way to celebrate New Years Eve!Keep Reading!

I’ve been working on a video of our Journey to Costa Rica for the past few months. It’s nearly complete, and eventually, I will put the whole thing online for those of you brave enough to endure the feature length version, but for now, I am going to add some pieces of it over theKeep Reading!

Wow, it’s been a long time since we’ve written. Life has been quite a whirlwind since we came back to Colorado. It’s been great to be home, but it has also left me longing for the quieter life of Tamarindo. Summer in Colorado means swim team, summer camp for the kids, and my favorite holidayKeep Reading!

Abby is back in the water this week surfing and we’re so excited for her. She’s made incredible progress in just a week. She started the week catching super mellow white wash and now she has evolved to trying to paddle and even catching real waves. It’s been a blast to watch. Here’s a quickKeep Reading!

Ben has worked very hard to create a project for his class back in Colorado about the tides in Costa Rica (and the world). He has been studying the tides as they are an important part of life while surfing in Costa Rica. Different beaches are better to surf at at high or low tidesKeep Reading!

Ben is currently working on a project for school about the tides so I thought it might be cool to shoot a time lapse video of the tides going out over Playa Grande. My experiment didn’t work all that well as the sun went down before the “real” low tide, but the overall result isKeep Reading!

You’ve gotta love the GoPro cameras. This is the first video we shot of Jacob after adding the GoPro Surf Mount to their board. Turned out great 🙂 I need to use more RainX to keep the drops off the lens, but it’s a great start. Plus, how fun is it to watch Jacob surf?!Keep Reading!

First quick video of Ben surfing with the GoPro mounted directly on his surfboard. Can’t wait to do more! This is surfing at Playa Tamarindo near the river mouth. Below are some pix from the session as well.Keep Reading!
