A Night at the Cantina is an historical account of the discovery, development and devolution of a surfer’s paradise, the Pavones region in Costa Rica. This chance discovery of a mile-long left point wave the absence of which this intriguing story with its myriad characters and events would not be told. Allan Weisbecker’s story, a chronological narrative of defining moments and key characters along with his stream-of-consciousness immersion into a night at the Cantina on his Big Five-O, is a story great novels and screenplays are derived from.
