Program

The secret to scoring in Nosara is local knowledge. Your Safari Surf Adventures surf coaching program will be led by the experienced and passionate local “Tico” coaches. The coach will guide you to level the appropriate waves and employ the unique SSA training curriculum in and off the water.

Nosara will be the base while in Costa Rica, but SSA will have a van fueled up and ready to explore the slew of perfect intermediate level surf spots to the south and north of the location daily. Each day, you will head out with the surf coaches and videographer to find the ideal surf spots for that day.

A key component of Safari Surf Adventures teaching philosophy is video and photo reviews, helping to track your progress and giving you focused goals to work on throughout the program. All progress tracking, photos, and videos are yours to take home at the end of your SSA adventure, giving you a great reference for continued progression whenever and wherever you surf.

Safari Surf Adventures goal is to accelerate your learning curve across the spectrum of the surf lifestyle to become a confident and skilful Surfer. This in combination with complimentary yoga, fitness, and breathing techniques that will offer you unrivalled progression and improvement.

In all locations, SSA supports local projects which help alleviate the problem of marine garbage and marine plastics. On every surf adventure with Safari Surf Adventures, you will have the opportunity to learn more and get involved with the sustainability vision.

Instructors

Andrea Diaz
(Surf Coach)
Andrea has been with Safari Surf Adventures as an instructor / coach since 2016. She is Safari Surf Adventures' new addition, but she comes with a ton of experience in the surf coaching world as her kids are all excellent surfers and competitors on the national Costa Rica circuit. She surfed professionally and was sponsored by Roxy. She is also the Costa Rican National Women’s Surfing Champion for the years 2011 and 2015. She is an ISA level 2 surf coach as well as a certified ocean rescue lifeguard.

Location

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!
