Panama Surf Trip

So I've been really busy since taking on management of and the Snowboarding Community which have experienced significant growth so far this season and occupied a majority of my time. Anyway, it's time for a surf trip and I'm heading to Panama.

I was in Maui this summer and hooked up with an old friend from UC Santa Barbara, Scott Balogh. He was working on a sailing charter boat called the Paragon which heads out to Molokini on day trips. Which by the way I highly recommend. Every boat over there claims to be the fastest boat in Maui but none compare the the Paragon. We blew by the fleet like they were standing still. My family had so much fun we went on the Paragon twice. The crew was great and the sailing was phenomenal.

Scott happens to own and operate an Eco Resort, Red Frog Bungalows, in the Bocas del Toro on the Caribbean side of Panama. He invited me to come down and check it out and I accepted. I am leaving on February 2nd and will be writing a daily Surf Trip Blog on Surf's Surf Travel Community.

I'll be taking three of my trusty Stamps Surfboards: 6'8" Round Pin, 6'6" Square Tail and a 6'5" Swallow tail; all thrusters.

Check back if you are interested and let me know if you have any questions along the way.
