OK, my wife normally does these sort of reviews; vacations are fun and then you go back to work...
It's the same year after year, right?
We spent a week with Kjeld, Marcela, Jossue, Pablo, and Sabriina at Kalon Surf Coaching Resort and I am still home sick. Each morning we awoke to the conversations of the monkeys outside our windows, and then enjoyed Marcela's fresh baked breads as we prepared for the days surf instruction. Kjeld and Jossue kept us busy with drills, evaluations, stretching and all sorts of fun stuff in the surf. We shared our lunch on the beach with the local Iguana's and Hermit Crabs as they listened intently to tales of our morning accomplishments and exploits (while waiting for a handout). After lunch we hit the waves, or in my case, napped under the palms as my son and daughter honed their skills in the surf. The evenings were spent enjoying family dinner as prepared by Pablo and Sabriina while we laughed and recounted the day.
As a 54 year old man who can count the times I have been in the ocean while I live less than two miles from the beach…I have now ordered my first surf board with Kjeld’s help.
I need to polish my skills before I ask for a job at Kalon…
