Liquid Sessions Surf School In Costa Rica With JMB Alum Donovan Burgess | JMB Podcast Episode 53

This podcast is a production of Jack Mountain Bushcraft Media. The Working Class Woodsman may or may not be a guest in this particular podcast episode and is not responsible for the content (especially for anything he might say when he's a guest).


Donovan Burgess is a Jack Mountain Yearlong Immersion Program alumnus and the founder of Liquid Sessions Surf, a surfing school and full-service travel company in Pavones, Costa Rica. They offer a variety of learn to surf programs, including a month-long immersion into the skills and lifestyle of surfing that includes food, lodging and your own masseuse! I had a blast with Donovan when he was at Jack Mountain, and am stoked that he’s followed his passion and is passing along his knowledge and experience of life on the ocean riding waves.

In this episode we talk about what got him to this point, the advice he received from movie star Chris Pratt and his next big project; traveling the west coast from Canada to Mexico in a modified ice cream truck teaching surfing and filming the experience.

North Carolina Whitetail Deer Harvest & Process (GRAPHIC)

I was lucky enough to spend a couple days with my good buddy Matt in North Carolina doing some whitetail deer hunting. Matt harvested a decent 5 pointer. We processed it and enjoyed some fresh venison.

Teen Wilderness Living Semester | JMB Podcast Episode 51

This podcast is a production of Jack Mountain Bushcraft Media. The Working Class Woodsman may or may not be a guest in this particular podcast episode and is not responsible for the content (especially for anything he might say when he's a guest).


In episode 51 of the podcast Christopher and I recap the 2018 season with our youth program, the School Of The Forest, and talk about the Teen Wilderness Living Semester coming in 2019. As part of the discussion, we discuss the difference between wilderness living skills and actually living in the wilderness. It is something I’ve felt strongly about for a number of years; instructors should have spent a few months living in the forest before they teach about it.
