I found Marco and his company on trip advisor prior to going Tamarindo for our first trip to Costa Rica. Beware there are a thousand surf shops in Tamarindo - none have any clue about SUP'ing nor do they provide any descent equipment. You will figure out the main one and watch out for them in the lineup - no... More

The English translation of "que simpatico que eres" sums up this experience. Marco (the owner) his absolutely lovely wife Lydia and their trusted compadre Jose are three of the nicest people you will ever meet. They are all very real, honest and genuine people who have such passion for Costa Rica and SUP/surfing. This was my first visit to CR... More

Marco and Jose provided an incredible 3 days of SUP surfing for me and my 14 year old son. As first-time visitors to Tamarindo, we were unfamiliar with the best spots and how to get to the best SUP breaks. Marco guided us to a perfect break that we would never have found if we had gone it alone. Once... More

If you are travelling to CR looking to rent high quality SUP equipment from a knowledgeable, accommodating and overall super-helpful ambassador of the spirit of "Pura Vida", rent from Marco and Lydia. From the initial contact through our return to the States, Marco took the time to identify and fulfill my equipment needs, arrange for convenient pick-up and drop-off times... More

Renting from Marco is great. HIs location is very convenient (right on the beach), his boards are in great shape and he is super friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend renting from him.

This is has been an experience my son will NEVER forget......and it's only been 5 days! I hope to get my son out of the surf to try some... More

I recently returned from a three week stay in Tamarindo and a 11 days SUP camp with Marco Salazar and his wife Lydia. I have never been on a board before so this was all new to me, but with Marcos tutoring I was riding waves already on the second day! He is so enthusiastic about what he does and... More
