Panamaniacs remembered by Steve Bissel in a beautiful slideshow

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 25 August, 2012 : - - The slide show says it all…  four fleeting minutes to condense a hell of a lot of heaven into something legal you could all swallow…and feel what it was like to run with the Panamaniacs back in the day. 

Of course most of us finally joined the human herd, which meant no more borrowing cop cars, or going to jail twice in one most interesting evening. 

Actually, there was even some beautiful passing scenery, like perfect hissing tubes here and there among the carnage.  All kidding aside, most of us are very lucky to be alive…some of our best are exploring and tearing up other worlds as I write…lets hope the waves are not too “hot” where they have gone!


There were bad times when bullets and bombs took both Panamanian and American lives…but even then, the few Panamanian and American surfers were and have always been brothers and sisters, and a little international incident never interupted our tube concentration. 

Ruben and Thomas Miro were the very first surfers in panama along with Richard Icaza, then came the first.....

As they say, those were the days!  Please enjoy the slide show of home…
