Surf Diaries: Brisa Hennessy

 

Brisa Hennessy currently lives in a tropical Fijian oasis, however the newly appointed WSL Championship Tour rookie is originally from Costa Rica. A beautiful, exotic country that is understandably on everyone’s bucket list! (And if it isn’t, it should be). Brisa found a second to let us in on some of her Costa Rican secrets...


Costa Rica sits right in the middle of Central America, lined by both the Caribbean and Pacific coastlines, covered in rugged, tropical rainforests and overflowing in fresh food and sloth-like wildlife… on your bucket list yet? Brisa explains where to eat, what to do, where to surf, what to wear and more. Here’s your go-to guide for travelling and surfing in Costa Rica.
