In celebration of Coastal Care’s 10 years Anniversary, we are republishing an acclaimed selection of the most popular Photo Of the Month contributions.

“Sean Davey first picked up a Kodak 126 Instamatic camera after school one afternoon in late October of 1977, to photograph a tiny perfect wave at his home beach. Little did he know at the time that it would develop into a lifelong obsession that would take Sean many, many places, in pursuit of his chosen craft of photography.

Fast forward some 30 years and Sean is now a veteran of the surf scene. Widely published in several countries, a career that has spawned more than a 140 magazine covers along the way. When not in Hawaii, shooting the north shore, Sean often leads exploratory photo expeditions to many of the worlds more “out of the way” surf zones…” —About Sean Davey Photography

“The relationship between water and light has fascinated me since i was a child. I would put my arms around my mother’s shoulders and she would glide underwater. I can still see the beams of light bending and shimmering.

As time went on I developed a close relationship with the pacific, spending my mornings and afternoons and any free time at all there.

The ocean has taught me many life long lessons. Two of them enabled me to make this image, Patience and Respect.”—Ray

Excerpts;

With two oceans and 800 miles of coastline, it’s easy to see why there are so many great beaches in Costa Rica. And while swimming presents a risk at most beaches due to a wicked undertow (which spells heaven for surfers), there are still plenty of strands of sand for an enjoyable day or week at the beach. Here are some of Fodor’s favorites, from the north to the south down the Pacific coast, and then to the Caribbean…
