Before I found Flickr I spent much of my time over another photo sharing site called PBase. I had met some great photographers there, learned from them, and was inspired by their artistry.
Inspired by James Pan’s “Rise of the Surfers,” I tried to duplicate his masterpiece with this photograph of surfer I captured at Playa Hermosa in Costa Rica.
I’m sure this was a “Pura Vida” moment for the surfer as it was for me to photograph him in action.
