Below are photos and descriptions of everybody who will be riding along for the Central American surf trip:
Description: Meet Timoteo Ayon (age 23), everybody just calls him Timo. Timo is from San Blas, Nayarit, Mexico. He’s a really mellow guy. In his free time he enjoys playing the acoustic guitar, bass guitar and just about any other instrument. He plays bass guitar in a local ska band called, Skazos Recursos. He is currently working on his English speaking skills, he is able get his point across most of the time. Timo is also a really good surfer. He prefers the longboard over a shortboard any day, like I said, he’s a mellow guy.
Watch Timo surf:
Description: Meet Rafael Carrillo (age 28). Everybody calls him Vocho. Vocho is a big guy. Solid muscle. An animal in the water. An all around cool guy. But he eats and drinks a lot. His favorite maneuvers are snaps and cutbacks. The bigger the wave, the better. He surfs a 5’8” shortboard that is as thin as a sheet of paper. He speaks a little bit of English but understands even more.

Description: Meet Edgar Machuca (age 27). Everybody calls him Maui. Maui is a Marine Biologist that often travels for his research assignments throughout Mexico. I haven’t seen him surf much because he works a lot but I have heard that he is a good surfer and an even better skateboarder. Can’t wait to get some footage of this guy.
Watch Edgar surf and skate:
