Team Rider Lucas Godfrey Tests Wave Tribe Gear in Costa Rica

by Bold Apps July 29, 2013

Costa Rica is probably the coolest place I have ever been to. This trip we stayed on the Osa peninsula called Cabo Matapalo—which is across the bay from Pavones. We are lucky enough to know a friend who lives right in front of Backwash Bay—which is where we surfed most frequently.

Between morning and afternoon surf sessions there was a lot of down time, this was usually filled by looking for snakes, monkeys, birds, or sitting back and reading a book. The Costa Rica wildlife is amazing, the rainforest is so alive, even coming from Hawaii it is awesome being in a place that is so untouched by man.

This is the type of place that I am sure inspired the Wave Tribe founder to create his company and I am stoked to be part of it to help protect these pristine places.

We went on the most breathtaking hikes with animals running everywhere through the jungle. I would say one of the highlights of the trip was going zip-lining---it consisted of traversing across twelve platforms, flying down these cables in-between trees and at times over a hundred feet off the ground!

I also used Wave Tribe cork deck pads on this trip which had great traction, I even met a guy down there using Wave Tribe's cork deck pad and leash I told him "right on for supporting a earth oriented company" and he agreed.

Although we didn't get swell much over a couple feet overhead---and never got Pan Dulce—it was an amazing experience just to be there and I got some shreddable waves in the process and tested my Wave Tribe gear, check the link below for some great pics of the trip. Pura Vida - see pics of trip here!
