When it comes to Costa Rica, Gilbert Brown is The Man. He's the guy you call to find out the right tide, the right wind, the right spot… except he doesn't ever answer cause he's already out there. Getting the right wave. More than that, Gilbert is just a living embodiment of CR's pura vida, climbing coconut trees, fishing with handlines and cooling in the shade even when he's out surfing.

For the past few years, Gilbert's been working a lot with transplant filmmaker Saul Garcia – this is a culmination of their artistic collaborations, and a fitting ode to Brown's lifestyle.
