what can i say, this weekend was an amazing one. It was quite short, but had pretty much all that jacò and costa rica could possibly offer.. For starters, it was the world surf championship, with around 35 different countries, and their groupies all gathered together in a quite chilled and laidback environment.
infrastructure isn't Costa Rica's strong arm when it comes to massive events as this, as there were only two little speakers for at least 10,000 people watching the contest.. and it was amazing.. all national teams really gave their best, and was quite glad to be around some and take some nice pics in some crucial moments, like this!
I love this pic! i named it 1+1, since the contrast in opposite directions is hard to miss...
Of course surfin' girls were also in da house. giving up a great show, specially the aussie and american national team. Here on a what i find very sexy pic, we have Samantha Cornish getting ready to ride!

I just love this pic.. and not because i took it, but because it reminds me of the old days, where one was once with the sea, it's provider. Kids since being able to hold breath underneath the water, would spend their days and night on the shore and into the sea...
How times have changed, but it's all coming back.. the rebirth of man and sea, the era of the boy and the beach.

Taken on a Sunday Forrest Walk in the Chipinque area near Monterrey, i saw this, and felt this strong sense of sureness, protection and limitless love. Any part of my body and mind that ever felt void was replenished, with love. I felt so loved. I felt so unique. I felt so eternal. Feelings are eternal, and that's what this photo is about.

Y es ahora cuando empiezo a aprender a estar solo, que uno por naturaleza, necesita aferrarse a algo, llámese religión, pareja, amigos, familia, vicios o tristeza. Pero siempre nos tenemos que aferrar algo. Ese algo es aquello que nos abraza mentalmente y nos dice: "todo va a estar bien". Que si el hombre se inventó la religión al darse cuenta de su existencia, no me pondré a debatirlo ya que es una plática de nunca acabar. Que necesitamos creer en algo, en un orden invisible que arreglará las cosas, brindará justicia y nos traerá igualdad, es indiscutible.
Llegando al punto principal de este blog, algo mucho menos profundo, no hace mucho fui convencido por mi cuate el Gramps de asistir al Zero Fest en la Ciudad de México, que contaba con la presencia de los Smashing Pumpkins como acto principal. Así que Gramps, Erick el comediante y su servilleta, nos aventuramos en esta oleada musical en un sábado cualquiera. A primera instancia, el clima estaba realmente pa'l perro, y para nuestro desagrado, la lluvia no cesó en un largo rato.
Al final de slams con Kinky, canciones melosas de Bright Eyes y un solo interminable de Mars Volta, llegó el acto principal, con Today por delante prendiendo a toda la raza y provocando una oleada que sólo Moisés en sus mejores tiempos podría controlar.
Aquí les dejo un pequeño video, una gota de humor y de muy mala entonación.
