Check! Yesterday Brandon Sanford woke up determined to get barreled and so he did, several times! Great attitude, great wave selection, great timing! It was really cool to see our friend getting pitted. The waves are pumping Now in Costa Rica, don't miss out! From Longboard waves to sweet barrels. Brandon Sanford is a Surfer from the Dominican Republic, born and raised in Cabarete! He is also CEO of @dominicansurftrips, taking clients to the best surf spots of the Dominican Republic. Brandon came to stay with us at Casa Longboard, he has been surfing his whole life! Started boogie boarding when he was 4 and wrote his first wave on a longboard when he was 7 years old. Brandon is a shortboarder, he loves getting barreled, loves big waves and is currently psyching on longboard surfing. Brandon has the best energy and is very cool to be around and surf with! It was great to have you here with us, until next time!  Good vibes!

Surfer boys, we absolutely love working with kids, surfing is a wonderful discipline that creates agility, ocean awareness, consciousness and opens many doors. It's awesome to start at an older age, it takes sacrifices and commitment. However when you start younger everything is just easier, the best decision for the future!

Daniel Alvarez took 1st place, longboard category, competing in the Copa Marley National Circuit at Cocles Beach, Costa Rica.   This is a heavy beach break and the conditions were not easy with strong currents and open and closed barrels.
