I recently got hired by RedBull to be part of a talented crew that would document legendary Robby Naish, on his quest to surf and measure the longest waves in the world.
As a first stop on this journey he came to Costa Rica to surf Pavones and Boca Barranca.
Robby is by far the most talented surfing professional I have ever had the chance to work with. Robby is a true gentleman and a wonderful person to work with.
As a result of this trip, it was established that Pavones measures an impressive total length of 1.09 kilometers long.

This piece was shot for RedBull international.
Production: Agustin Muñoz, Saul Garcia.

The union between two loved ones will not allow any distance to stand on the way.
This was the case for Crystal and Daniel’s wedding. Family members and friends came all the way from Canada, U.S, Hon Kong, Malaysia, etc, to witness and be part of such great union.
My lenses as the witness and the beach of Tamarindo, as the host, Crystal and Daniel had a wonderful wedding that included a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and a standard western ceremony.

Still photography:
by Javier Castañeda and my good old friend Diego Mejia as the photographers had lots of very cool and original ideas that also made it into the video, including taking a side trip to the town and bringing surfboards to the beach on their wedding outfits. I had a great time working with them.

Crystal & Daniel got ready at the wonderful Capitan Suizo Hotel:
This hotel is one of the best established hotels in Tamarindo that over the years has become a landmark and a great institution.

Best of luck to the newly weds!!
