The year he graduated high school, Andy worked for World renowned fin designer and shaperrdquoCurtis Hesslegraverdquonbsp as an apprentice fin foiler, working along side Curtis for five years shaping the best windsurf speed fins, tow-in fins, and surfboard fins in the world.nbsp This led into Andyrsquos career in shaping surfboards, where he shaped his first board in 1993, and has shaped over 2000 boards since then.p pAndy took his first surf trip to Costa Rica in 1991, and fell in love with everything CR had to offer. Three years later he moved down for good, and has built a life and also a family.nbsp The first three years living in Costa Rica were on the Caribbean side in a town called Puerto Viejo.nbspIn 1995 Andy discovered Mal Pais on a tip from a friend, as it wasnrsquot really on thenbspmap yet.nbsp After his first visit to Mal Pais, andy decided to pack it up and move to Mal PaisSanta Teresa. Shortly after the move, he met the love of his life ldquoEdithrdquo, and they married in ldquo98rdquo and gave birth to Klarissa Seidensticker the same year.p pOnce the move was complete over tonbsp Mal Pais,nbspAndy partnered with a friend who also grew up in California ldquoAaron Abernathyrdquo , and together startednbsp the first surf company in Mal Pais, which was called ldquoCorduroy to the Horizonrdquo, where they made Custom Surfboards together,nbsp rented surfboards, ding repair, surf lessons and sold basic surf accessories.nbsp They were the only surf shop in town for four years.p pToday almost 20 years after moving to Costa Rica, Andy has diversified and hasnbspformednbspFreedom Riding SUP Costa Rica,nbspto cater to all levels of paddle boarders.
