In December of 2011 I joined Ben Dann and the Wells family in a 2 week journey to Costa Rica. After finishing all my finals the first week of December I packed all my stuff for the trip and spent 24 straight hours flying and laying over in airports until I arrived in San Jose, Costa Rica. Upon arrival I caught a taxi and met Ben and Brendan Wells at a local hostel. The next Morning we meet up with Jim, "The Big Dawg," Wells and his newly rented Mini Van. From there our trip began.
First we hopped on a Bus to Domincal to get some quality surf time and meet up with the World Class Academy.

Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful and wild places I have ever been. The rain forests there are like no others that I have ever seen. I am stoked that I was able to Join the Wells family see there amazing home away from home. It was a short trip but I am fired up to return soon and check out some more Costa goods!
