For those people who really loves catching waves on a high-performance shortboard, Pitbull is a super good friend. The problem catching waves is because your shoulder hit the water when you are in take off paddle, Pitbull has a serious extra thick nose area rails that push your chest out of the water, thick rail makes the nose slow in turnings, so I bring little more rocker in front area, so your front foot still going to be easy to turn, but extra front rocker hurts your paddle take off, so I made a flatter tail rocker area, for extra driving. Pitbull has a super nice takeoff, easy nose to turn and extra driving tail area, back foot always is in speed and front foot turning anywhere you going
I felt that traveling to Tamarindo Beach was too far and difficult so I decided on Playa Jaco, one hour south of Boca Barranca. With my boards on my shoulder, I stopped at the first surf shop I saw and met William Johnson. He said, “Mae, I want to try those ‘bichillas’ (surfboards).” That was an awesome moment for me, receiving a compliment from the owner of a surf shop for my work.
Chosita del Surf Jaco
Making good friends like Chuck Herwig—a very generous and important person after relocating to Playa Jaco—I found my professional distribution in the “Chosita del Surf” now W.O.W SURF) and climbed the ladder as a professional shaper of surfboards in Central America.
Carton Surf Shop
I opened my own surf shop, located at south end of Jaco, and my new “glass house” is located in Herradura. I can confidently say that, thanks to my long history and the people who stuck around and are still here next to me, I have managed to create a product of international quality.
