Uummm bro, I don't understand you're complain, i think that this kind of "local" mentality doesn't help to communities, surfing tourism in bocas del toro is one of the principal income of that island, as well as a lot of places, if grumpy locals keep on with this kind of thinking, a lot of people will be without job... think about that... besides... just for you to know, Bocas is been published since more than 10 years ago, just mention a magazine and yes they've already made a full story of this place.. don't believe? just check out june's surfingmag...so...

great shot, agreed on your take, bocas needs a steady influx of surfers, yeah it sucks to share your wave but its important for the community. Always long beach if you need to get away from people.

I lived 2 years on that island and totally understand the need of those people to live out of tourism... surfing tourism. Surfing shots or magazines don't harm, what DO harm is that "local" mentality (ask hawaians after tons of years, now they're trying to be friendly), it's well known that respect is a thing you've got to carry with you anywhere... so, bro, i'm sorry to tell ya, but get used to it...if it's not me... i know at least 3 photogs. that still on the island and still sending shots to magazines and websites... is just the way it is...
