Liquid Sessions Surf School In Costa Rica With JMB Alum Donovan Burgess | JMB Podcast Episode 53

Donovan Burgess is the founder of Liquid Sessions Surf, a surfing school and full-service travel company in Pavones, Costa Rica, as well as a Jack Mountain Yearlong Immersion Program alumnus. Through Liquid Sessions Surf, Donovan offers a variety of learn to surf programs, including a month-long immersion into the skills and lifestyle of surfing that includes food, lodging and your own masseuse! I had a blast with Donovan when he was at Jack Mountain, and am stoked that he’s followed his passion and is passing along his knowledge and experience of life on the ocean riding waves.

In this episode we talk about what got him to this point, the advice he received from movie star Chris Pratt and his next big project; traveling the west coast from Canada to Mexico in a modified ice cream truck teaching surfing and filming the experience.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
