Brett: A few really cool trips down into The jungles of Costa Rica and scored some epic waves also a couple big days at refresher and hurricane Sandy gave us some pretty gnarly serve here in South Florida! I finally got to see Tres Palmas break at about 25 to 30 foot wall hanging out with Dick Catri and Reno Abillera!

I really enjoy surfing at K 59 in El Salvador and of course my home break in South Florida when there’s a swell Juno beach, reef Road and pumphouse.
Alejandro: Surfing tips you want to share.
Brett: Always try to respect your fellow surfer try to have fun in the water instead of fighting for a wave always try to keep the beach is clean and respect the Mother Nature.
Alejandro: Any comment or advice for surfing community?
Brett: Try to travel as much as possible to see some new waves and experience different spots cultures and foods! Also I think that most new surfers should try some old school boards and different fin configurations and rockers like the old-school singles and Twin fins, most of the people out there never try this type of thing!
