Guy Trudeau spent a few weeks in Costa Rica this winter. It was not the first time the Canadian windsurfer opted for Lake Arenal over the frozen Canadian lakes in winter. And he met the German freestyler Andi Lachauer, who as well escaped the cold European winter and lived the “pura vida” (that’s how he called his video) at the very windy Lake Arenal, situated in the northern highlands of Costa Rica.
The 30 kilometer long lake produces quite nice waves, when the wind is at its full strength. Guy edited two versions of his video. The first one called “this and that” shows pure action and the second one with the title “this and that pura vida mae” is a bit more about the Central American lifestyle at the spot and shows many more riders, who spent their winter at Lake Arenal, too.
