Meet Our Crew

RafaCaptain CaboWe would like to introduce you to our crew. If you have never done a trip with us, you don’t know what you are missing. Not only do we have surf able waves year round from beginner to old school advanced, we have a crew that turns a great surf trip into an epic one.

First and foremost meet our captain. His name is Juan Carlos Gutierrez Mendez but every one calls him Cabo for short. He is 36 years old and is a father to 4 boys. Cabo has been with our business for 11 years. Before he signed on to work for Costa Rica Surf Charters he worked his way up to captain on a long range commercial fishing boat for 5 years. This man knows how to fish!!! He also knows everything there is to know about our charter boat. Cabo is what you call “every thing that is man”. He is the guy you want to be on a deserted island with. Cabo can build fires, slay fish , free dive and make the most amazing meals out of a small galley. On top of all his talents he is a really fun guy to be around. He loves to pull practical jokes so beware! Cabo says he only speaks Spanish but give him 2 beers and his English is better than most. On a trip with him you will always learn something new and experience some of the best meals Costa Rica has to offer.

We would love to introduce you to our first mate. His name is Rafael Alfaro Vallejos but goes by “Rafa” to keep it easy. Rafa is 22 years old and has been with us for 6 years. Rafa has been Cabo’s right hand man for so long now he can also be Captain. Rafa speaks English fluently and is a wonderful translator for our English speaking guests. Rafa is also known as the best fisherman in Playa Hermosa. To watch him work is mystifying. He can catch fish with a string and his bare hands alone! Rafa is also known in town for his skim boarding. Anytime there is a competition around he alsways ranks top.

One of the best things about our crew is that they are great surfers and surf instructors. They know the waves like the backs of their hands. If you are a beginner surfer, Rafa will gladly go and instruct you. If you are intermediate or advanced our crew will take you to the best waves for your experience level. These guys will customize your trip, so no matter what level surfer you are you will be guaranteed to have an epic trip!! If you have never done a trip with us… You should really start planning on one!
