Here we have a top sale design, the Costa Rica Surfboards model The Volkswagen, It is almost the most solid complete board, behind surfers point of view I ever design, Volkswagen is a super rich driving format, but include sweet details. I focus here on a how to make a board fishy but with shortboard fundaments, The outline is semi egg in the front área, as you can see, the back área is 100% shortboard outline in wider prototype, so you have the responsive you know, when you going to the top the wave; wider tail gives you huge balance and extra flotation in the shore break surf. Volkswagen has a flat rocker, single concave to huge VEE between fins, this provides speed and quicker movement rail to rail. The Deck is flat for an extra paddle , but the rails are like a shortboard, so you can feel the boards aggressive hitting the lip.
I recommend enjoying the Volkswagen surfboard same side of you, or one-inch shorter, Quad or Truster.
Skill levels: Beginners, Intermediate, advanced
Wave size : knee-high - 2ft overhead
I felt that traveling to Tamarindo Beach was too far and difficult so I decided on Playa Jaco, one hour south of Boca Barranca. With my boards on my shoulder, I stopped at the first surf shop I saw and met William Johnson. He said, “Mae, I want to try those ‘bichillas’ (surfboards).” That was an awesome moment for me, receiving a compliment from the owner of a surf shop for my work.
Chosita del Surf Jaco
Making good friends like Chuck Herwig a very generous and important person, after relocating to Playa Jaco I found my professional distribution in the “Chosita del Surf” now W.O.W SURF) and climbed the ladder as a professional shaper of surfboards in Central America.
Carton Surf Shop
I opened my own surf shop, located at south end of Jaco, and my new “glass house” is located in Herradura. I can confidently say that, thanks to my long history and the people who stuck around and are still here next to me, I have managed to create a product of international quality.
