Each hotel room is unique in design and style. All rooms come with high quality pillow top mattresses and luxurious linens, high power AC inverters, organic bath products, flat-screen cable TV, mini fridge, private safe, wireless internet access that can be accessed in your room or poolside, hair dyers, and maid service (linens and towels are changed every three days unless otherwise requested).
The surf lessons last one and a half hours to two hours and include an introductory on-beach instruction where Kelly's Surf Shop and School teaches the fundamentals of the sport, as well as safety and etiquette.
Once in the water, you start off in waist to chest high water until you feel more confident. There is never any pressure on you and the instructors will not push you into something you aren’t ready for. The instructors are fluent in both English and Spanish and are capable of teaching students of all levels.
The group surf lessons are perfect for those travelling alone and want to meet some new people or a group of friends who wants to try something new together. A group lesson will consist of three to four students. Kelly's Surf Shop and School can also accommodate groups larger then four but will send more instructors as they have a 4:1 student to instructor ratio. Kelly's Surf Shop and School feels that you will benefit the most in small groups. They strive to give each of you the individual attention you need and deserve.
The instructors are stand up paddlers and will have you paddling comfortably within the first ten minutes. The two-hour course will teach you how to find the sweet spot for balance and comfort, paddling technique, and basic turning technique.
Group yoga classes are available for groups of two or more. You will have a class just for your group. This is your chance to create a private atmosphere for you and your friends. You will get plenty of attention and it is a great option for couples or friends who want to do some activity together. Kelly's Surf Shop and School can offer poolside yoga classes in Vinyasa, Power, Gentle, Yin, and beginner yoga.
The SUP yoga is two hours in length. You will begin with some basic SUP until you reach your tranquil setting to begin your SUP yoga class. SUP yoga is great for beginner yogis or an exciting challenge for more experienced yogis who want to challenge themselves while adding a moving element to their practice.
This surf camp will take place in Tamarindo, Santa Cruz, Costa Rica.
