#FriendsTravel Costa Rica Surfing with JESS Kalinowsky JESS@FriendsTravel.com

Surf School’s an off-the-beaten-path, optionally all-inclusive, week-long surf academy for everyone from beginners to experts in a tiny beachside town called Nosara in Costa Rica, with predictably rideable waves on a pristine, warm-water, nature-preserve beach accessible either via a dirt road or through a jungle path that unexpectedly ends at a sandy graveyard, which is presumably where Sandy Alomar, Jr. rockets baseballs at you from a catcher’s stance until you die! Lessons happen for an hour-plus twice a day, starting with basics (paddling, standing, etc.) on the beach and continuing in the water, first getting you comfortable on the whitewater before eventually heading out behind the break, with a uniquely focused instruction style that’s got no more than three students per instructor, who include both locals and expats with names like Ronaldo, Rolo, and.. Owen (you’ll never guess which is which!). To break up the sessions, there’s a full-serve restaurant and bar serving up local microbrews and specialty cocktails (fine, caipirinhas), as well as optional activities that range from late-night excursions to check out a slew of monstrous sea turtles emerge from the water to dig ditches and lay eggs on the beach, to back-country ATV explorations, to a forest-canopy zipline, to partying in the local club “Bananas”.

Packages for all levels of surfers, from the very beginner to the advanced on one of Costa Rica’s best surfing beaches.

Three, Four, or Five Star accommodations, plus transportation. Everything for the active adventure traveler.  Non Surfers will have plenty of activities to keep them busy while the surfers are doing there thing!
