Club del Mar Hotel Resort Costa Rica Surf Camp Program

Surfing is a surface water sports in which the surfer rides on the forward or deep face of a moving wave, which is usually carrying the surfer towards the shore. Surfing involves riding ocean waves with a surfboard. To catch a wave, the surfer swims a ways out into the ocean lying on their stomach on the surfboard.

When a wave comes, the surfer aims the board into land and begins to paddle to catch the wave. Once the wave begins to propel the surfer, the surfer pops up from the belly and stands on the surfboard. Now the surfer rides the wave as it speeds into shore. Club del Mar Hotel Resort will introduce you to surfing in a safe, fun and supportive manner with the appropriate equipment.

Beginners

The class will be usually waist to chest high deep water. Your instructor can walk along with you, helping you to manipulate the board and positioning you for waves on the right timing as you need it. You will learn:

  • Safety guidelines in the water
  • Carrying the board
  • Entering the surf zone
  • Paddling the board
  • Catching white water in prone position
  • Standing and riding water waves
  • Traversing right and left and dismount

Intermediate

If you feel comfortable with the waves, Club del Mar Hotel Resort will move outside to the lineup and your instructor will be swimming along with you, holding your board if you need it, and helping you position for and catch the waves. You will also learn to duck diving or Eskimo roll, paddling through waves, wave judgement, proper positioning in the lineup, wave catching techniques, turning and maneuvering on the wave.

How to get there

Driving directions from Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO)

  • Leaving the airport, you must head north along the Pan-American Highway which runs in front of the airport.
  • You access this by turning right out of the airport parking and then taking the right entrance to the freeway indicating Orotina or Puntarenas.
  • About 5 - 10 minutes down the freeway, you will see a sign for Jacó (not a lot of notice) just before an overpass.
  • There will be some large white cylindrical shaped tanks immediately to your left at this point labeled RECOPE.
  • Take the turn off to the right.
  • Immediately turn left over the overpass which crosses over the freeway you just came off.
  • Follow this road until you pass La Fiesta del Maiz restaurant on the left (the sign is a large rotating cube).
  • About half a kilometer or so past the restaurant, there is a soccer field on the left.
  • Turn left at that corner.
  • Follow this small meandering road for about 2 - 3 kilometers until you arrive at an overpass.
  • Turn left immediately before the overpass.
  • Drive uphill parallel to the freeway for about 100 meters (the freeway will be on your right).
  • Enter the freeway to your right to head southwest to Orotina.
  • There will be two toll booths from this point on so you will need about 3 USD in local currency to take care of that.
  • Continue to follow the signs to Orotina and bypass Orotina to continue to Jacó.
  • You will still have another 30 minutes or so to drive.
  • Bypass all the entrances to Jacó Beach and continue to the south end of town.
  • You will pass the Jacó El Arroyo Service Station.
  • 200 - 300 meters after the curve on the right-hand side is Club del Mar.
  • Go slowly after you pass the gas station because it will come up suddenly.
