Jorge and Joaquin and others in Costa Rica: During a visit to a small community in Costa Rica, Griffin and Paul they crossed paths with two men named Jorge and Joaquin who were peddling colourful simple bracelets on the street. When they first met Jorge and Joaquin, they were living in a single room with three beds shared by several other members of their family. Seeing this, Paul and Griffin asked them if they would be willing to make 400 bracelets to take back to the United States with them. Upon returning to California, Paul and Griffin decided to put the bracelets into a bowl at a local boutique shop close to home. It didn't take long until they all sold out and people were asking for more. They realized these simple string bracelets were more than just your everyday bracelet, they were a movement.
Now, Puravida bracelets give Jorge and Joaquin enough business to live comfortably in a house of their own and have 30 of their amigos work with them. Jorge and Joaquin went from selling a few bracelets a week to now over 20,000 a week. Their bracelets are now being sold in 2,500+ surf shops, boutiques, college book stores, and a few large chain stores around the world.

You: The phrase “Pura Vida” (pu·ra vi·da) means pure life in Spanish. Enjoying life slowly, celebrating good fortune and not taking anything for granted embodies the Pura Vida Lifestyle. It's about being free and living life to it's fullest with no regrets or taking anything for granted; it's an attitude. Pura Vida directly translates into "Pure Life", simple as that. Pura Vida is more than just a saying, it's a lifestyle representing the simple things in life.
