LIS Live It Stoked World Conservation: COSTAS VERDES Play Hermosa Costa Rica!

We recently spent 40 days in Central Costa Rica in Jaco and Playa Hermosa shooting footage for LIS.
One magical afternoon, I was finishing up shooting some clips of some of Costa Rica’s hottest PRO Surfers
at the Backyard in Play Hermosa, when an amazing, energized, friendly local from central approached me.
His name is Federico Guitterez who is the coordinator, director and founder of an organization called
COSTAS VERDES which works tirelessly to preserve and restore the natural environment in Costa Rica.
Freddy asked me my name and what had brought me to Central Costa Rica, and I explained that I have
friends and new found costa rican world family members in Jaco and that I was there shooting for LIS.
He inquired as to my focus with Live It Stoked and I discussed with him the aim at bringing global awareness to the
POWER of POSITIVE THINKING and how to channel STOKED ENERGY into action when action is the necessity.
Freddy was immediately interested and charged by the mission of Live It Stoked and was very interested in my story.
He then told me about his mission with COSTAS VERDES and environmental conservation and preservation in Costa Rica.
Costa Rica is and has been experiencing major signs of global warming and climate change with alarming increases in temperatures
with many trees and species in jeopardy.
Freddy asked if we would like to join forces to bring GLOBAL AWARENESS to environmental preservation in Costa Rica and if we would
like to utilize and channel some STOKED ENERGY by taking ACTION and planting some trees on the outer jetty of Play Hermosa just down
the road from the famous “Backyard Bar”.
We were SO STOKED and so honored to have been asked to be part of the Costas Verdes team and organization and will
continue to support COSTAS VERDES as an LIS Live It Stoked Advocate and Preservation Partner!
Freddy Guiterez and his team are responsible for planting over 22,000 trees from Guanacaste to Playa Hermosa Costa Rica!
Help us support the preservation of our planet by donating what ever you can to the LIS COSTAS VERDES FUND.


LIS Live It Stoked : BOXEO Jaco Costa Rica: 2016

Live It Stoked was in Jaco and Playa Hermosa this summer for 41 days collecting and shooting content for the site and our network.
During that time, we were spending our Pura Vida hours between the famous “Backyard Bar” in Playa Hermosa which is one of the main
attractions to PRO and Semi PRO Surfers as well as surfing enthusiasts and fans from all over the world.
During our trips to Central Costa Rica, we have been blessed and fortunate enough to meet some of the crew that not only support the local
and international surf scene, but men who dedicate their time and STOKED ENERGY to their communities by fostering, teaching and mentoring
sports programs to children, young adults and adults that would normally not have the opportunity to participate.
Pancho Spangenberg is one of those AMAZING individuals who embodies the POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING and STOKED ENERGY,
a professional boxer and surfer who suffered a broken neck during his boxing career as a young champion, but who decided to start a new l
ife and a new career as a boxing instructor, mentor and coach even though his boxing career was sadly cut short.
Pancho not only scores the Semi PRO and PRO Surf competitions at the Backyard, but also runs two different boxing programs in Central Costa Rica.
The boxing community in Jaco is strong and continues to grow thanks to Pancho and the parents who support the Garabito BOXEO Organization
and the town of Jaco.
With dedication, hard work and the “Hearts of Lions” the Jaco Boxing team was selected to compete in Costa Rica’s Championships and made
a decisive showing this year with multiple talented fighters in multiple weight classes.
This is an AMAZING example of the POWER of POSITIVE THINKG, community outreach, team building and hard work for the world to notice!
We are honored to have been a part of BOXEO Jaco and are truly blessed to have Pancho as an amigo, hermano and LIS Advocate!
LIVE IT STOKED PANCHO!
PURA VIDA MAE!
