LOCAL GUIDE: My name is Rene Timpanaro I am 18yrs old and I am one of the surfers from Masachapa. I started to surf for the fun of it but understand for me surfing has become more than a sport it is a way of life. The feeling I have for surfing is very emotional something I can't explain, when I'm in the waves I feel a sensation that can only be compared to sex. This is the only way I can try to explain it. I have only been surfing for 2yrs and I have alot to learn but I have set my goal to become the best. I know there is a danger in surfing big waves, every time I escape that danger I look for a bigger one. In other words "Surfing is my life"
