Chris Johnson, the founder of the Montezuma Surf School, has influenced me with his positivity and effortless way of guiding one through the simple and exhilarating experience of surfing the ocean. Chris is one of the most peaceful and fun-loving individuals I have met during my stay on the Nicoya Peninsula; I thank him for opening my eyes to "la pura vida" de Costa Rica and to some of the great options for exploration around Montezuma. During our surf lesson, we visited a breath-taking and expansive beach of bright blues and soft sands, called Playa Hermosa, in Santa Teresa. As beginners, he eased my friends and I through the process of catching a wave and despite some pretty funny falls, we each got up on our boards with the support and solid advice from Chris within the first hour! After some cool drinks and fresh piña, we all felt amazing and couldn't resist going back in for some more waves - I don't think the experience could have been any better than that... Good company, accomplished feelings, and topping it off with the beach bonfire capped off the day as perfection! After two full weeks of different activities in and out of Montezuma, I can confidently say that this was by far the best and most worthwhile experience I've had. Chris has become a great friend and I know that his optimism and abundant enthusiasm will influence many more to come!
