Hey guys, I'm posting this for a very good friend of mine, who also shoots photos for me. I have also posted this in the wakesurfing section. He was shooting surf pics down in Costa for about two months and returned right before Christmas. On his last night there he had almost all of his gear stolen, over $20k in cameras and lenses and other equipment. So if anyone surfs down there at all or plans on visiting anytime soon, keep an eye out for some nice gear for sale cheap or anyone trying to sell gear. Most likely from what his local friends told him, its already gone, and they think they narrowed it down to a local thief and his son, but have no proof. But he is offering a decent reward for the return of his gear in hopes it may show up. He had been fighting with his insurance company about coverage for months and still had nothing finalized when he went on this trip. So if anybody here does happen to surf in Costa or venture that way to shoot photos, please keep your eyes open, just in case. Should anyone happen to fin out anything, please contact me directly through here via email. Thanks guys
