If you’re familiar with Nosara then you’ve probably heard of, or may already know, ‘Coconut’ Harry Heinke. Harry is a fun guy with a solid Nosara history going back to the mid 90’s and I’m excited to share his episode with you.
Almost everyone traveling into Nosara is greeted by Coconut Harry’s old surf shop upon arrival into Guiones along Ruta 160. Harry sold the shop to ‘Coconut’ Steve Reyer (a previous Nosara Podcast guest) over a decade ago, yet his name continues to live on. In fact, Harry still enjoys a surf session followed by some cold Pilsens and a sunset more than anyone I know.
This episode covers: Harry’s journey to Nosara, introducing Nosara to Virginia Beach, the ‘old days’ of surf in Nosara about what the crowds and waves were like, opening and operating Coconut Harry’s Surf Shop, thoughts about Nosara’s growth, what he’s up to these days, his Nosara dislikes, 3 favorite restaurants, thoughts about politics these days and much more.
I hope you enjoy listening to Harry’s episode!
