I quit breastfeeding in February and over the next few months, starting feeling like I was reclaiming my body and mind just a bit. My kids are still very attached. We co-sleep and co-nap, but not needing to rush in from the surf to breastfeed every couple hours has given me a lot more time and flexibility to reconnect to myself and my surfing.
Due to the civil unrest in Nicaragua that’s been happening since April, we have been hanging out in Southern Costa Rica. I miss our home in Nica, but it’s also been great to hang out on the shady, jungle fringed beaches and surf super long left point breaks on every swell.
Here’s a highlight video from a couple of good swells where I was able to dawn patrol the point, then come home, have breakfast, grab the kids, and cruise down to the mellower spots to catch a few waves with the kids.
Life is good.
