While some of the US was getting pounded by heavy winds, and flooded by sea swells, we took advantage of sunny days in Long Beach, New York, to get some surfing footage! Jairo is back in the water with his new heart monitor and doing great so far! Thank you for all of the messages of support; we'll keep you updated. In the meantime, enjoy watching some fun Atlantic coast surfing! It's not Costa Rica, but it'll do!
We know that surf photos of us doing what we love are priceless. Until further notice, photos that we take and post are free with one small exception; All we ask is that you like and follow us on social media and, where applicable, give us 5 STAR reviews!
