WRSC and 91.1 La Radio to produce Tamarindo beach concert in January Jun 24

Although dates and artists are not yet confirmed, Witch’s Rock Surf Camp has teamed up with Costa Rica’s largest radio station to produce what should be Tamarindo’s biggest beach concert ever. We are trying to organize this concert in conjunction with the Tamarindo CNS surf contest event and we will be hosting this event from the surf camp property.

Music acts potentially include reggae artists SOJA (www.myspace.com/soja) from Washington DC and Pinback (www.myspace.com/pinback) from San Diego.

If your company is looking to get more involved in the Costa Rican surf/music scene and would like to sponsor this event, contact WRSC at 1-888-318-SURF.

Rock Ice, our first concert sponsor, has already committed ,000 towards the concert. This event will be free to the public. With 3 months of in-country radio promotions we are expecting this to be big (and really fun!).

Thanks to Joe Walsh and Witches Rock Surf Camp!!

Joe Walsh rambling about nothing and everything Jun 18

I must have done something really nice to Continental Airlines, as practically every time I fly I’m getting these mysto upgrades to 1st class. I’m a cheapskate by nature, literally buying Imperials over mixed drinks when I go out in town and haggling over a couple bucks when buying trinkets for my kids from the local vendors in town. I’d haggle if it was or 0 or 00, I guess thats how one gets ahead in business, or at least one way to do it. I found a 0 ticket to California and somehow I’m sitting in seat 1B somewhere over Belize or Mexico and I’m thinking about how I’ve just embarked on another surf adventure and how I’m truly stoked. My staff think its funny that I plan trips but wait until the last minute to actually buy my ticket and go. To me it makes no sense to leave Tamarindo when the waves are going off and while California is windy and lacking swell. Last Thursday the surf started to drop in Tamarindo and the swell models started forecasting the waves to arrive to Cali from the big storms that have been formed in the north pac for the last week or so. Me, with my commitment issues, finally bought a ticket on Friday and here I am, on my way to surf big waves in cold water, the endless winter. The decent sized NW swell should be coming in tonight. My buddy John Alexander will be picking me up in LA in Uncle Rico’s van and we’re hitting the road for a week of California surf. I had a thousand Witch’s Rock Surf Camp stickers sent to my parent’s house, my dad sent them, a couple of boards, my 4/3 suit w/ booties and hood, a cell phone and some other random necessities with Justin McCabe back to LA, I’ll be seeing him in Venice Beach this afternoon and then heading north after perhaps a PM surf if theres waves or just chilling out with old friends for a couple of hours. I’m not quite sure where we’re going first, I need to check the surf report once I get to LA, but it looks like we’ll go north to Big Sur or perhaps even Santa Cruz and then follow the swell as it travels south back to San Diego. I’m getting amped and making sure to listen to plenty of punk music to get me in the mood for surfing in FREEZING NorCal water more…

I finally break radio silence. Not sure really why I haven’t popped my head up to see whats been going on around me. I think what has happened is that for the first time in my adult life I’ve fallen into a routine. My life currently consists of my family (wife and 2 boys), my job (mostly the surf camp), surfing as much as I can (4 hours/day?), a couple of close friends I hang with a bit (before falling asleep at the sad hour of 9pm) and a bunch of friends and family I never have the time to write back to on facebook or call up on a Sunday night just to catch up.

We have had a niñera named Rosie for the last three months or so, she is awesome. She works Monday – Friday and half days on Saturday. It really helps to have the help, she definitely helps Holly so incredibly much and she allows me to focus on surfing so I can improve. Plus its easier to bring the entire family to the beach and for Holly and I to surf together. Or Rosie, since she is now surfing too. Is it me or is everyone surfing these days? I love it, reminds me of all of those surf movies and Malibu before I was even born, as though I may have missed out on it the first time around but not this time.

Normal day: I wake up at 6am, perhaps a little earlier or later depending on when Happy or Otis want to get up, but pretty much the crack of dawn as far as I’m concerned. We watch Discovery Kids, eat Cheerio’s, sometimes hang out in the surf camp restaurant or on the beach for an early morning low tide cruise.

7AM or 8AM or so: go surf. Surf Casitas, surf the rivermouth, surf Avellanas, surf the reefs. Surf a lot if its good and surf less if it sucks. It always seems to be pretty good somewhere fortunately. more…

Its funny, watching CNN, then comparing their notes to FOX. CBS and NBC have their own info, also different. I guess this means I’m an adult, as Holly and I are drinking beer and watching the elections. This Presidential race will be over after today and the world can move on.

Thanks to Joe Walsh!!
