After surfing in the morning on an empty stomach, we would hop out and walk onto the rocks to our favourite restaurant to tuck into some Pupusas and banana smoothies. It is literally perched on the point. Their hammocks were also the perfect spot for a nap throughout the day.

For about a week straight we didn’t leave El Zonte. The waves were good, the people were amazing and the food was quality. We rotated between surfing the point and the beach break. This photo is on the 5 minute walk to the beach break, across the inlet.

These sandals were strapped to our feet for a month. They copped a fair bashing, but after a quick rinse and dry, they were brand new again!

We could both hardly speak Spanish and there were so many points on this trip that we were in the middle of nowhere glued at the hip to each other. We both love to have a chat but a lot of the time we weren’t too sure whether we were cracking jokes or just losing our marbles.

We flew into San Salvador and headed straight out to one of my favourite places, El Zonte on the Pacific Ocean.

There is a group of about 25 local kids that run around the small village, day and night. They surf, skate and have a real keen desire to scare each other by throwing lit fireworks at one another.

Getting from the Costa Rican capital of San José out to the Pacific Ocean requires a couple of bus rides and a ferry across the Gulf of Nicoya. It ends up being a long day of travel with no air conditioning and 40 degree heat. But when you step onto the ferry and feel some fresh sea breeze everything is okay. Or maybe it was just the lack of marbles again..

We rented motorcycles in Costa Rica and rode around the countryside. No helmets, no shirts, no road rules. It was super dry and hot. Our tans tripled in the space of about 2 days.

Flat day exploring. We hiked around some amazing beaches and found some of the most pristine and empty beaches in the world.

We stayed in tents, hostels, bus stops and on beaches but not many of those topped these converted sea containers in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica that our friend owned. It is a trend in Costa Rica to get as creative as you can with sea containers and mix and match them to fit together and build your ultimate low budget home. The possibilities are endless.

We had been on the Pacific ocean for a couple of weeks in the dry and dusty climate getting scorched like almonds. So when we stumbled across Montezuma, which is just tucked around a corner from the Pacific at the base of the Gulf of Nicoya, we were more than happy to rest up in the green surroundings and chill out for a few days.

Alex is a mad man. He enjoys base jumping, so this little cliff jump in Costa Rica that was scaring the locals didn’t phased him one bit. But he did land on his ass and struggled to walk for next few days. Stiff buddy.
