Learn to surf in Costa Rica! Jul 02

The magic of surfing in Costa Rica!

Surfing is a unique experience that can be considered both an art form and an athletic pursuit. It is a lifestyle and a great recreational activity that is not only a lot of fun but also promotes physical fitness, great health, alleviates and relieves stress.

Caught up in fast-paced lives of the new millennium, surfing is the ultimate way to get back into touch with nature. Surfing requires that you focus on the moment and as a result, all the stress from that fast-paced life is left on land.

You know the scene, you are laying on the beach on vacation watching the beginner surfers wipe out and fall on their butts. And the secret truth is, you wish you were one of them. You have always wanted to surf and have always been too scared to try. But surfing can be a great sport, and no matter how uncoordinated you are, with the right training, you too can learn to surf.

Most importantly, don’t be embarrassed. You are going to fall… a lot. You will likely be in a high traffic area and tons of people will see you fall. Don’t be self conscious. Everyone has been there and it’s just the first step in your learning. Don’t expect to be perfect right off the bat. Surfing is very difficult and requires skills that you have never used before (and muscles too), you will improve, but you need to give yourself time. Learning to surf can be one of the most difficult things you do in your life, but it can also be one of the most rewarding.

So you’re in sunny Costa Rica, you’re surrounded by a lush rain-forest. The lapping waves of pristine beaches await your attention. Perfect for beginners to those with more intermediate skills. Experienced surf instructors have probably chased waves all over the world and know exactly how to teach you the skills of catching a wave in a safe and fun way. If you have no experience with surfing, no problem there’s no better place in the world to learn!!
