Ok, here is the second part of my videos from Costa Rica this year. It's about some freestyle and friends sailing in a cool place with some cool music. The idea was to make you feel like being there!

I did sailed 52 days on 56 days there. We sailed a lot but did not filmed so much. Whatsoever, I think it make a nice video to watch for the fun of windsurfing!

Now, back in Montreal region, I will try to make a windski and windsnow video!! :) Ho yeah!

Have fun! Cheers! Thanks to watch!

Dear Surfer,
Thanks for the nice video I appreciate your ability. However, sea is so -so, too much wave I think you love to surf in wavy sea.
Salute to Montreal and St. Catherine street.
bye Melih..

Thanks Melih! St-Catherine street is under the ice but still realy hot to discover!! :) Wavy sea is also cool, when it's windy. Hopefuly, I will be able to talk about Australia one day. One of my nephew is going to your nice country this summer. I will know your place a bit more...

Thanks again for watching and have some good wind on your side! : )

By the way, I am super happy to say that I have some super good stuff to make one or two nice windski videos. This week is super good for that. Today, again. So keep watching for more actions!!

Cheers

Love the video, thanks for sharing. Did you bring your own gear or did you rent locally?

Hi Boardsurfr, thanks for your comment. It's appreciate.

I go since 2005 in Costa Rica for the winter. I have the chance to flight with Air Transat, direct flight. They take two bags ( Board-Sails ) for 100$ can. Then, you could let your gear at Ticowind for another 100-150$ us. You could rig your stuff and let it there, so it's super easy and the wind is always the same direction, the trade winds.

But, I do suggest to wrent from Ticowind ( the only one ) if you go there for only 2 weeks. Because it's perhaps stronger winds then you could think and they have what you could need. In the same time it's a good way to test different sails ands boards.

The place is small, so people have to reserve fast. January and February are the best month for the wind, but it's windy from decembre to april or so. Some year the wind could be good later then that.

The funniest thing of this place is that it's like a private spot. There only about 10 riders at a time, so you could always see your friend doing is things while you are seat on the beach under a coconut tree. The temperature is arround 26 C everydays. It's jungle there so It could be rainy sometime, more in decembre and january, then it's goes dryer. This year, we had almost no rain at all. It was really dry but as windy as usual.

Whatsoever, it's a really funny place. I know that I have a lot of fun with the Australian people. Everywhere I meet some of those guys, I had some good time with them because we have a lot in commun, more then with the Americans. There is many Quebecers there so I think people from Australia would have a good time there too. : )

Cheers!!
