Surfer near the end of his run

Tamarindo is best known as a surfing town that has evolved into an international beach resort, so it is time for a few surfing photos. This surfer is near the end of the run on this wave, as the wave has already crested and broken.

As you can see, after crashing, this wave is taller than he is. I took this photo on Langosta Beach, just below our condo.

Do you think he will have a graceful end to his run? As regular readers of this blog will anticipate, the answer will be shown tomorrow.

On our travel photo site, Viva la Voyage, we are showing some photos of the Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires, Argentina. If you have not been there, check out why it is a major tourist attraction.

He looks pretty steady, but that is a lot of water right behind him. Great shot.

I have faith in him. He has great body confidence on that board.

Hmmmm...that big wave looks like it's serious enough to give him a spill. (Be back tomorrow to find out!)

Looks like he's doing pretty good so far.

Now that's what a call a real surf photo. How fabulous. No idea if he'll fall or not - just enjoying the ride.

Wow - look at that surf. It's poetry in motion, or rather water.
Cheers.

I like this place! I love the idea and wish there was a place like this in Astoria, Queens. I am a surfer and found a "real surfer bar" in Point Break NYC. I am kinda jealous ;0PIts filled with surfers, people who like surfers, people who like the beach and people who don't want to live close to town. I really like this place. You know what they have these real Proctor and Channel One surfboards on the wall. It's nice for coming any day of the week and eating a late brunch. The food was outstanding. The brunch and sides were prefect and tasty. It is a perfect "escape" from city living. It is probably one of the only places where you can get a nice frozen pina colada or margarita. The service was on hit. They came up and checked on us so many times and made sure everything was up to par. It gets very active and the bartenders keep everybody having a good time. The bartender was very accommodating. He was nice enough to make a drink, that wasn't on the menu, for me :0) Did I mention the bartenders are nice eye candy. It was amazing to see their “das boot” which is shaped like a boot filled with beer. Don’t get me wrong, I am not drunk…it’s an actual boot shaped beer container ready to be emptied. Try it ..You will love it!! Oh. How can I forget, they even have a wheel o' shots where you just have to spin it and have to drink whatever shot it lands on!! Now call that bar creativity at its best!!! And when I spill a tray full of shots on myself, the bartender so kindly remakes them for me? Good music, too, and the decor helped us weather an otherwise overcast and rainy day. You know that old song "Brandy"? It goes, "Brandy, you're a fine girl, what a good wife you would be. But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea." I believe Brandy works here. No reason, I just do. And that song happens to be a guilty pleasure of mine, so that's a plus in my book. You can simply waltz over to this colorful and warm establishment, enjoy some drinks with friends, and walk home. The bar is right at the center, so you can walk to either side for drinks, and the bartenders are friendly and at your service. There is a variety of seating, good music, and friendly neighborhood people to make your time more enjoyable. Not pretentious, very cozy, I think Point Break is a fabulous place to spend some time with friends.
