Instructors

Marcos Suarez
For more than 10 years, his passion has been the ocean, the waves, and surf. He started surfing as a kid, training every day regardless of his mom´s fears about tides, waves, and other marine phenomena. Surfing wasn't just a hobby to him, but a way of life. The most important lesson he learned from the surfing is to keep trying and never give up!

Location

This surf camp takes place in Playa Grande, Santo Cruz, Costa Rica. The locations will be your home away from home in Playa Grande. They have been designed for living the beach experience to the fullest, a unique place to visit only steps from the beach.

Playa Grande

Playa Grande is a beach town on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica just north of Tamarindo.

It is a famous wave in North Pacific, with perfectly warm waters throughout the year, and the offshore wind from December up to early May.

Because the beach is very open to the ocean, It is always good for surfing because it can pick up many different swell directions and offers you many different sized waves depending on your skill level. This beautiful beach has long attracted surfers from across the globe. One reason is that it is much less crowded than neighboring Tamarindo. There is no place like Playa Grande to catch the perfect wave!

Playa Grande offers you many types of incredible restaurants, spa, coffee shops, hotels, apartments and rental properties. So do not look any further! Have your surf lesson, rent a board, buy wax or sunscreen. You won't be disappointed with the friendly employees and quality equipment.
