Here are the pictures from our trip to the little surf village Santa Teresa in Costa Rica.
Here are the pictures from our trip to the little surf village Santa Teresa in Costa Rica. The first thing that meets us after 2 hours on a ferry boat is a woman pealing lemon fruits. And I felt right at home.After unpacking the surfboards we head down to the beach to see what mood the ocean is this very day. The first week was we didn’t get perfect longboard waves. This picture is form the last day when the conditions where perfect. But I’m so grateful that we got so many good days of surf as we did. After the morning surf at 5 am we would head to the organic restaurant Olam at the boutique hotel Nautilus. Other days we would go to my favorite café place in Santa Teresa called The Bakery.Here you have Josefin and me at Olam. I feel in love there gluten free pancakes and organic smoothies. Perfect after a few hours of morning surf.They also had Yoga classes on the loft of the restaurant where we took this picture. I wish I could tell you I went once but nope, I didn’t even stretch once after surfing… Something I’m gonna regret at tonights Yoga class here in Stockholm.At the beach I was quite bussy making friends with the local dogs. This Ridgeback was one of my favorites.We bonded over having the same shoe size.The house we rented was called The mermaid dome and shaped like a ball.Here you have my amazing traveling companions André, Frank and the one and only Josefin. This from the restaurant with the best view but unfortunately the worst food. They made up for the bad meny with beautiful interior and strong drinks.A very happy Frank and Josefin after a beautiful sunset. I’m really gonna miss these golden sunsets.One of the days we rented quads and went to the waterfall in Montezuma. Unfortunately I didn’t get a picture of the big waterfall but I got this of the smaller one.At midday there wasn’t much to do other than trying not to get fried by the sun. So one day we invited our selfs over to two friends how rented a house with a pool. Something I could recommend to everybody going to Santa Terese, having a pool that is.Frank by the poolside enjoying the shadow. Most evenings we went out for dinner but some night we had the pleasure of eating fish tacos or Andrés amazing lentil Dhal.At the beach it was all about the surf. In this picture you see me looking att some compression cracks on my new board. Lucky me they where easily fixed with some quick-fix glue. The last week went really well even if I hoped I would evolve a bit more. But I’m very happy about having a new cross-step picture.
Finally it was time to head back home. Which didn’t feel to bad as I’ve been missing Stella like crazy. Here are the boys on the ferryboat enjoying one last sunset.
Thank you so much everyone who made this trip amazing! Pura vida!
Emma Elwin is happy about being back home but is already missing surfing.
Until next time
Emma Elwin is saying goodbye to the beautiful view of the ocean, for now.
