There’s no way around it: summer is the flattest time of year for the East Coast and the Mid-Atlantic in particular. Knowing this predictable pattern, Surf & Adventure Co. crew members Daniel Brittian, Briar Nelson and Alec Truelove booked their flights to a place with plentiful summer swell: Costa Rica, the land of summertime pura vida!

The photos above tell the story of their journey. Long taxi rides, shuttles around from break to break and plenty of striking landscapes to experience were the going rate. The boys even made their way to Nosara, where Sandbridge local Dave Maher runs his Jungle’s Edge resort.

From the looks of it, the trip was a success.
