About Me

April 17th, 2011

Joe Walsh - Tamarindo, Costa RicaMy name is Joe Walsh.  I am 33 years old.  I grew up in San Diego, California.  I live in Tamarindo, Costa Rica with my wife Holly and my two little boys Otis, 5, and Happy, 3.

10 years ago I drove a school bus to Costa Rica and founded Witch’s Rock Surf Camp.  You can read the story here:

I am a full-time surfer focused in Central America.  As a professional guide I provide a handful of surf tours each year to various destinations in Costa Rica, Panama and Peru.  In Tamarindo I help oversee the operations of Witch’s Rock Surf Camp.

Besides surfing, I spend my time

  • sailing to remote surf breaks on deserted islands strewn along the Caribbean coast of Panama
  • building surfboards
  • alternative farming and construction
  • rebuilding shitty old trucks and boats and making nicer, fully-functioning ones
  • writing

I am currently writing a book about passion, vision, the importance of family, ethical business philosophy, environmentalism, the point-of-no-return adventure, true happiness, and a recreational use of marijuana.  Until I finish you’ve got this blog.  Enjoy.
