Panama lost on the Pacific coast with Brock taylor
When Brock Taylor asked me to go to Panama there was no question to it, yes, I’m in. This is my third time to Central America this year. everytime I go it has been to a different country which has really made it awesome. And each time it seems like the surf has been a little better than the last… Maybe it will always trend that way! In these past three trips Central America has really grown on me and each time I love the food, culture and people even more than the last.
We thought about exploring and driving around to see more of Panama and look for surf during the planning of our trip, but we never had to go look further than the front porch we were staying on for the entirety of it. Every mornings surf checked started with a french press on the porch in our outside kitchen where we could watch the sun reflect off of the waves we were about to go enjoy. It was as easy as that everyday. Wax up and go.
I had the privilege of bringing my wife Tatum along on this trip and she proved herself valuable behind the lens. She spent the days on a beautiful black sand beach under the palms filming for a short edit.
Our first morning proved to be one of the better days of the trip. Brock packed so many barrels in nice overhead, clean conditions.
We were fired up.
One of the better adventures we had was finding this restaurant where we had dinner almost every night. An exhausted crew of surfers could go fill up on a huge plate of fresh fish, rice and beans. The fresh Ono steaks were the biggest I've ever seen, and the Ahi was on point. Pick anything on the menu you were going home full and very happy.
