Reveal the beauty that surrounds us - An interview with Ale Romo

March 26, 2015

It’s 5 am and I haven’t slept yet. I am not quite sure if it’s because I was busy, or simply because I was stressed for my interview with Ale on Skype. Still don’t know yet. 5:30 am: Incoming call from Ale. I never talked to her before, just small talk over the internet about the interview, but not much really. I never did a Skype interview neither. And, she has talent, so it’s even more stressful. 5:31 am: I said ‘’HI’’ with my raspy morning voice. And, then, the conversation started and all my stress disappeared.   Credit: Stefan Leitner Ale is a charming woman that has a passion inside her for surfing.

Watch the swells even when you are working // An interview with the founder of The Surf Office and a guest.

March 24, 2015

Startups are becoming more and more popular with days. We finally understood that we can do anything by ourselves merely with some motivation and some free times. We can launch an iPhone App, we can write a book, and we can start a blog as we can start our own online shop. Sometimes, in our daily life, focusing can be a challenge.

We should close our cell phone and our social media websites, but we never do and that’s for that reason that we want to go at The Surf Office. A co-working space that offers you the beach as your background with some gnarly... Continue Reading →

Connect with your surroundings - Yoga for Surfers

March 20, 2015

Imagine yourself. There is the white sandy beach. There are seven feet tall turquoise waves. There is you trying to pop up on your board with strength to catch the next wave. Then, there is you the day after, feeling aches, pains and knots. You wanted to wake up at five in the morning, but feel too exhausted because of your aching body and your tired eyes. I guess the surf session of this morning will be for later on. Or not even today. People always told me, ‘’you can drink and party hard, pro-surfers doesn’t work out, they drink beers at the beach and enjoy their life’’. Yes, right. It’s not because they pop a bottle of champagne when... Continue Reading →

The waves can catch everyone: Interview with Jesse Levesque – Photographer

March 18, 2015

I recently found myself thinking that the way people in Quebec find their way to travel is impressive. We are here, far away from everything, kind of staying in our comfort zone and then, we want to explore. Simple as that. I discovered the work of Jesse Levesque because of a little chat I had with Servio on a sunny afternoon. He knows the family for a while now, and I can’t even understand why his pictures aren’t on the blog yet. Born in Quebec and now living in Nicaragua to avoid the freezing winter, Jesse spends his days shooting pictures of surfing and waves, at the same time of drinking refreshing drink that doesn’t cost a dime. Some would... Continue Reading →
