I recently got back from another incredible trip to Costa Rica. Though I was primarily there to photograph the High Energy Fusion Yoga teacher training (which was absolutely an amazing experience), I also took time go surfing and eat a ton of fantastic sea food. During my lessons with Tortuga Surf Camp I learned that the owner Mike was training to compete for a spot on the Costa Rican national SUP team.
Standup Paddle Board (or SUP) is a sport that I am learning more and more about. Like surfing, boards come in all shapes and sizes, all designed to accomplish different things. Mike was testing out a brand new board by Banzaii Surfing during my stay and I decided to follow him and one of his instructors to a sunset training session.
