We'll immerse ourselves in the day to day life of a beachside community, spending time with local schoolchildren and helping to improve their community facilities. The second half of the program features surfing lessons on one of the best beaches in Costa Rica!
This program combines fun surfing lessons (for all skill levels) with meaningful community service for an incredible Costa Rican experience! We will learn to surf at one of the best beaches in the country, Playa Sámara, known for its gentle waves for beginners and fun easy riding for those who already are comfortable on a surfboard. Keep an eye out for the wild horses that roam the beach here!
Our certified surf instructors will teach you everything you need to know to be safe and have fun in the water. After several days of lessons at Playa Sámara we will take our surfing skills to Playa Grande for some of the best beach breaks on the Pacific Coast. Here, we will enjoy additional surfing lessons to perfect our surfing skills.
We’ll also spend time with local schoolchildren and help to improve their community facilities. Projects vary but our service work typically consists of working on art projects with the children, reading to them, teaching them English, and general upkeep of the school such as painting and light maintenance.
Surfing and service aren’t all we’ll do. We will also take cooking and dance lessons, zipline, hike, go on a mangrove animal safari, snorkel and enjoy Costa Rican "pura vida"!
