blog intro

Surf Safari is a true story of a wild, often dangerous adventure taken by a father; his two young sons and two friends of his older son. plus two big German Shepherd dogs down the Pacific Coast of Mexico and Central America 1969/71. At that time those Banana Republics were ruled by cruel constantly warring dictators.  While discovering waves never before surfed they survived major hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and avoiding armed guerillas, bandidos and drug pushers.  They were robbed, arrested, imprisoned and suffered vehcle breakdowns, but all recall that trip as the two most exciting years of their lives.
