The weather in Costa Rica is always warm and sunny so it makes sense that some of the hottest swimwear would be inspired and created there by two surfing beauties. BFFs Veronica Wessell and Michelle Rodriguez, native Ticas, design their swimwear based on personal experience. Who else would be more qualified to know what works in a bikini than these girls, they spend at least two hours each day surfing the shores of Costa Rica's lush beaches. The CW Network's Mia Gradney flew to Costa Rica for a first-hand look at the duo's latest line to hit the beaches of Central America.

Some of the line is featured and sold on the the popular fashion website US Trendy that features up and coming cutting edge designers. Take a peek and purchase on US Trendy website.

Uncovering Gaming

Casinos are seemingly everywhere now

By Andrea Doyle

Rainforest Gaming
Talk about out-of-the-ordinary.
 
“It is truly a unique experience when you can sip Cuban rum and play Texas hold ’em while the toucans and monkeys call to one another from the treetops. The surrounding area is rugged rainforest terrain, so it seems like an unusual place to stumble upon a casino. The local wildlife is abundant and a national treasure with some of the world's most bio-diverse rainforest. If cards are not your game you can try your luck at the slots, Roulette, dice or the slot machines.” says Magan Hunt, director of public relations for StayinCostaRica.com, a travel and tourism company based in Herradurra Bay that manages the
largest portfolio of luxury properties in the country.
 
The Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort is a luxury Costa Rican resort hotel between the warm waters of the Pacific and a 1,100-acre tropical rainforest. The resort is also home to the Stellaris Casino.
 
So although cities like Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and Reno are renowned for their casinos, destinations the world over feature world-class gaming—and that’s a sure bet.

2011, the Ultimate Fishing Season in Costa Rica

Global weather patterns have brought what could be great news for anglers heading to the Central America region this year. According to the experts, 2011 is going to be off the charts when it comes to sport fishing. Marlin, Sailfish, Dorado and Yellow Fin Tuna are expected to take the bait in record numbers.

The active sport fishing season is attributed to El Niño and La Niña weather patterns. Both have a big effect on fishing and allow global experts to predict the season. La Niña is defined as cooler than normal sea-surface temperatures in the central and eastern tropical Pacific Ocean that impact global weather patterns. La Niña conditions recur every few years and can persist for as long as two years. El Niño and La Niña occur on average every 3 to 5 years. However, in the historical record the interval between events has varied from 2 to 7 years. According to the National Centers for Environmental Prediction, this century's previous La Niñas began in 1903, 1906, 1909, 1916, 1924, 1928, 1938, 1950, 1954, 1964, 1970, 1973, 1975, 1988, and 1995.

These events typically continued into the following spring. Since 1975, La Niñas have been only half as frequent as El Niños. Scientists predict their evolution through Sea surface temperatures in the tropical Pacific Ocean that are monitored with data buoys and satellites. Observations of conditions in the tropical Pacific are essential for the prediction of short term (a few months to one year) climate variations. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) operates a network of 70 data buoys along the equatorial Pacific that provide necessary data about conditions at the ocean's surface such as temperature, currents and winds in the equatorial band. These buoys transmit data that is available to researchers and forecasters around the world in real time. The data is complimented and calibrated with satellite data collected by NOAA's Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites, NASA's TOPEX/POSEIDON satellite and others.

In 2009, the El Niño effect produced unusually warm waters in the Central and Eastern Pacific that had a tendency to send the Billfish to the bottom in search of cooler temperatures. In 2010 the sea surface temperatures in some areas were measured at and above 90's. Although the fishing in the region was good compared to most places, this warm current was bad news for anglers who are used to non-stop fishing action.

As we enter the 2011 season Costa Rica's Sport Fishing seems poised for a strong rebound from last year's less than spectacular catch results. The current data from NOAA Satellite Imagery clearly points to cooler water temperatures in the region this year and that is expected to remain at least until April of next year. Local charter captains are optimistic about the prospects on the open seas.

Normally, it is not uncommon for Costa Rica's charter boats to raise 20 + Pacific sailfish in one day in addition to the Marlin, Tuna and plentiful Dorado found in those waters. Captain Walton Smith who has 15 years experience and captain's Stay In Costa Rica's flagship called Sunny One, says he has already noticed a change in the bite heading into this season. "Fishing is our business and our passion and when we have good success in finding fish for our anglers it makes the job exciting and rewarding." Stay in Costa Rica.com President, Larry Savage is gearing up for a spectacular fishing season with excellent deals on accommodations and fishing charters and boasting Costa Rica’s largest portfolio of luxury properties for rental. “Here in Los Sueños, sport fishing is a huge attraction and our anglers have world class expectations. In addition to the local knowledge and reports shared by the captains within our own fleet, we also utilize information like water temperature currents to make sure we find the bite for our clientele.

Radio Host Will Run For 24 Hrs + Half Marathon @ Harley Dealership To Knock Out Kid Cancers

93Q RADIO HOST KEVIN KLINE ANNOUNCES AMBITIOUS 24 HOUR TREADMILL RUN, PLUS A HALF MARATHON INTO TEXAS CHILDREN’S CANCER CENTER FROM HOUSTON HARLEY DAVIDSON DEALERSHIP, REPUBLIC HARLEY DAVIDSON.

HOUSTON… Kevin Kline, local morning radio host on The New 93Q, will attempt something very few people have done. Starting at noon on December 31, 2010, he will run for 24 continuous hours on a Lifetime Fitness treadmill atop the Republic Harley Davidson dealership's roof in Stafford, Texas. At noon on January 1, 2011 Kline will descend the roof and then run 13.1 miles into the Texas Children’s Cancer Center. Kline hopes his effort will raise awareness and $50,000 for Snowdrop Foundation.

“The goal, first and foremost, is to symbolically show the monotony, isolation, boredom and discomfort (or pain) kids with cancer go through during their fight. Also, the run will be a tiny reminder that kids fighting cancer is a continuous battle and they don't get to stop until they are clear and free of their disease and that doctors don't get to stop working for a cure until they've found one,” said Kline.
Well known on the local radio scene, Kevin Kline is also the president and co-founder of Snowdrop Foundation, which raises money for Texas Children’s Cancer Center. Foundation funding supports the center’s cutting edge work in pediatric cancer research, provides twice annual weekend Gulf excursions for patients, and awards college scholarships to pediatric cancer patients and childhood cancer survivors.

“Kevin’s tireless passion and commitment to Texas Children’s Cancer Center is so apparent in every venture he takes on and every effort he makes to create awareness about pediatric cancer. We feel so fortunate to have someone as tremendously devoted as Kevin is as our friend and supporter,” said
Dr. Poplack.

Since establishing Snowdrop Foundation in 2006, the Foundation has donated over $300,000 to Texas Children’s Cancer Center and awarded 61 college scholarships to patients and survivors. For more information and to donate, visit www.snowdropfoundation.org

The event coincides with New Years celebrations, Special sales, Champagne Toasts, Live Entertainment and dancing at the Republic Harley Davidson Dealership. The dealership will be open 24/7 starting Friday December 31st and continue non-stop for 33 solid hours. On New Years Day over 1,000 riders will take to the streets to lead the procession to Texas Childrens Cancer Center, the expected length of the procession is speculated to be about 7 miles long making a BIG impression on passing motorists. Additional efforts to raise money for the Snowdrop Foundation include a Grand Prize Raffle for a 2011 Harley Davidson motorcycle to one lucky attendee.

Republic Harley Davidson is located at 12707 Southwest Freeway, Stafford, Texas 77477

DKoko Bikinis Makes United States Debut

 

 

Costa Rican Swimwear provides sizzle to Health and Fitness Magazine’s Annual Style Show

 

HOUSTON, Texas (May 27, 2010) – The hottest swimsuit fashion trends of the season graced the Houston runway for Health & Fitness Sports Magazine’s fourth Annual Swimsuit Fashion Show, May 26 at 6 p.m. This free event at Champps Americana featured several of the models and fashions from the magazine’s May Swimsuit Issue, including DKoko Swimwear’s new Summer 2010 line of bikinis.

 

DKoko swimwear was launched in Costa Rica by two gorgeous surfer girls, Michelle and Veronica. The girls wanted a suit that looked sleek and sexy yet would stay on while riding the surf. They both have an affinity for fashion and went to school for design in San Jose, Costa Rica. DKoko can be found in Costa Rica at the legendary Piko's Surf Shop (where the Surf Pros shop). The Summer 2010 line is bright, colorful and flirty for fun at the beach. It has south of the border of flair which makes the line much spicier than traditional swimwear you may find around town.

 

Misty Marlow, 2010 Swimsuit Issue cover model and 2010 Miss Swimsuit USA International modeled DKoko’s new line in the fashion show. All head’s turned as Misty strutted the Costa Rican inspired swimwear line. DKoko’s suits bare more skin but stay on even in the hardest surf. Several local boutique owners were abuzz about the unique style and functionality of the suits. Although Dkoko is not currently available in US stores, plans are set to hit racks this summer.

 

Stay in Costa Rica was a proud sponsor of this event, adding to the Latin America spice for the evening. Guests were invited to peruse the latest issue of the company’s magazine featuring spectacular surf sites and destinations and accommodations.
