Everyday should be Mother’s Day. As a father of twins that witness first-hand the genuine love and selflessness between my wife and children, 1 day a year to acknowledge a mother’s tireless job seems too little. For our friends in North America, Mother’s Day falls on the second Sunday of May. Here in Costa Rica, Mother’s day is celebrated on the same day every year, August 15th.
To celebrate the day, we asked some of our surf instructors to commemorate their mothers with some kind words. Here’s what they had to say:
Randall (Fish) – My mother has always been by my side and encouraged me when I was young that I could achieve anything that I wanted in life.
Xiquiu – My mother means everything to me. My father taught me that before everything, comes my mother. That I should always think of her in everything I do. As for surfing, she would always drive 2.5 hours to my favorite beaches 3 times a week when we lived in Venezuela and she would wait for me to surf for 3 hours and then drive back home.
J Luis – My mother, with her love and patience, allowed me to thrive as a child. I try to transmit this same energy to my surf students as they are learning surfing.
Mao – My mom bought me my first surfboard even though she was scared of me surfing. I’ll always be grateful for that.
If anyone deserves a vacation, it’s your mom.That’s why, for the 1st time in WRSC history, we are running a Moms SURF for FREE promotion.
Here are the rules:
