Safari Surf Adventures' goal is to accelerate your learning curve across the spectrum of the surf lifestyle to become a confident and skillful surfer. This in combination with complimentary surf stretching, surf fitness and breathing techniques will offer you unrivaled progression and improvement and plenty film footage of yourself. Safari Surf Adventures' unique program focuses on the following principles for success:
Relatively remote equals less crowding and more wave opportunities for you. You need consistent wave repetition.
Educating you in the proper yoga / surf stretching before and after you surf to improve overall flexibility and strength which in turn helps progress your surfing.
For most intermediate level surfers, the major roadblock to advancing your skill is in your head. Blending breath work - learning how to control your breath in uncomfortable situations, building a core mental approach to situations in the surf that once had you handcuffed will unleash your potential not only in surfing, but also in all stress type situations in life.
There is no substitute for video analysis to help you understand your shortcomings and progress your surfing. Safari Surf Adventures has invested in the best (and most expensive) video analysis software in the industry. Having a coach walk you through your video clips is priceless when it comes to advancing your surf skill.
The best watermen and women, trained surf coaches with you every step of the way, in the water and on land. Providing instant “live” feedback is essential in expediting and developing your confidence and your development.
Safari Surf Adventures has teamed up with many current and former pro surfers who endorse our program. Don’t be surprised if a pro surfer pops in on your camp to be a guest coach providing you invaluable feedback on your surfing and hang with you for the event!
This surf camp will take place in Nosara, Costa Rica. Nosara is a cocktail of international surf, wellness, and yoga culture pitched against the beautiful back-road topography, tropical microclimates, exotic vegetation, and abundant wildlife. Traditionally a fishing and agriculture province, the first surfers from the United States arrived in the early 1970s and discovered the world-class surfing waves and “Pura Vida” lifestyle on which the tourism industry now thrives.
Nosara is much less crowded and developed than the beaches of Tamarindo, Jaco, and Dominical. There are no streetlights or paved roads in the province and no developments built upon the beach of Playa Guiones thanks to a 200-meter turtle refuge exclusion zone. Monkeys swing through the trees above a tropical blend of flora and fauna, making for a stunning backdrop to this performance surf program.
Playa Guiones enjoys a reputation as one of the most consistent breaks in Costa Rica, picking up both north and south facing swells. There is an abundance of waves in the area from the multiple peaks in the Playa Guiones bay to ample breaks, beaches, hidden waves, and secret spots to the north and south Nosara.
The Guanacaste region on the Pacific side of Costa Rica is littered with insanely consistent fun surf spots that you will be venturing too. The surf session will be based on the current swell direction, wind direction, and tides to treat you to some of the best surf in the area. You will have local surf coaches / guides that will put you in the best waves of the day.
You could find yourselves surfing a hollow beach break where you can work on the take-off and pull into the barrel technique. Then, you could find yourselves on a nice long reef break to work on your rail to rail transitions as well as your cutbacks. No matter where you end up for the day, you will be in the best surf possible for the best results possible!
All meals are included and prepared by the local chef. It also includes choice of 6 beers daily (36 total ) or (1 total) litre of rum or vodka per person. The private chef will prepare your nutritious all organic healthy meals daily.
Please book your flight to arrive at Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR). Transfer from and to the airport is included. Safari Surf Adventures will pick you up from the airport.
