Robert August: The Endless Journey
Disponível: Em estoque
Robert August, star of the original Endless Summer, continues his quest in the wave-rich regions of Central America with this fine surfing video dvd.
While he fondly calls Costa Rica his second home, Robert, his son Sam, Wingnut and their crew also explore the untapped Guatemalan coastline and discover a bounty of uncrowded surf and Mayan culture.
Robert August has been traveling to Costa Rica for over 18 years now. He has built a second home here and travels to this amazing destination on a constant basis and is considered by many as one of the locals.
The locals refer to themselves as Tico or Tica.
The ideal is that of a very friendly, helpful, laid back, unhurried and environmentally aware people. Pura Vida (literally, Pure Life) is a way of life in Costa Rica that encourages living in a peaceful manner surrounded by nature, family and friends.
Our Endless Fun group has been visiting Costa Rica for close to two decades. 2006 was one of the best years we have seen, with great weather, offshore winds, overhead waves and a great turnout for the Robert August Charity Challenge.
Guatamela, located in Central America, was the ideal second location for The Endless Journey Continues.
Our crew consisted of our leader and star of the classic film Endless Summer, Robert August, his son Sam August, Endless Summer 2 star Robert Wingnut Weaver, Huntingtons Bud Llamas, Dodger Kremel, Mary Osbourne and Costa Ricas finest, Brookes Wilson.
Although this well-traveled group has criss-crossed the globe in search of surf, for some reason the Guatemalen customs stamp was nowhere to be found in any of our passports. Our only thoughts of this country were from textbook stories about the ancient Mayan culture and years of political instability replayed on our local news stations.
That was, until our host, Pedro Pablo, sent pictures of waves too good to be true In Guatemala, we learned two things very quickly: The pictures we were sent of the waves did not do them justice and the textbooks could never compare to experiencing the Mayan ruins in person. While in Guatemala, we discovered hundreds of miles of black sand beaches, countless breaks with no crowds and an amazing culture and history. Now the only question: Do we keep it a secret or shore our stories with the rest of the surfing world?
