Did you know that Costa Rica has some of the best surfing in all the America’s? Year round waves, warm blue waters, and uncrowded lineups. If you’ve never surfed before now is your chance! Todd has the equipment and instruction to fit your needs. Beginner, intermediate, or advanced, you will be challenged and most importantly have fun. Prior to getting into the water you will have an instructional session on the beach covering expectations, basics, ocean safety, and the surf lesson of the day. Out in the water you will receive instruction on paddling out, reading the ocean and the sets of waves, “dropping in”, standing up on your board, and wipeout safety.
We are gifted here with surf breaks both to the north, and the south, and for those not willing to stand yet, Todd has Boogie Boards too. What can be better than getting a great workout, exploring a new aquatic medium, and working on our tans! You are never too old or too young to start. The best part is the post-surf recovery massage to enhance your body awareness thus completing the circle of wellness. Todd is available every day depending on the tide, swell, and ocean conditions. Advanced notice is advisable. Todd is also Red Cross CPR and First Aid certified. $65, 2-3 hour lesson. Unlike other lessons there is a customized difference. Todd includes information on equipment, history, varied techniques, and what surfers are “looking for”. Surfing looks easy because it must be smooth, this takes practice, practice, and more practice. Often times he is asked to do multiple days which includes traveling to other beaches. Manuel Antonio is the perfect place to give it a try!
