We really enjoyed our first SUP surfing experience. The staff here are so knowledgeable and kind. Marco and Lydia actually told us to come back on a different day because this was our first time, and the wind was too strong for beginners. He wanted to make sure that we would enjoy ourselves without having to worry about our safety.... More

Before spending a week in Tamarindo with Costa Rica SUP Adventures, I thought paradise could be found in Central California. Now I know the truth: SUP surfing in 82 degree water, without a 4/3 wetsuit, with calm winds and a building swell, on good equipment, and being coached by Marco and Jose, two terrifically enthusiastic and kind people, is truly...

My friend and I made a rather last minute decision to go on this surf adventure, and it ended up being one of the best surf trips we've ever been on. From the minute we stepped out of the airport, Marco had everything arranged perfectly. We were picked by our friendly driver in a clean, spacious van and made it... More

Pura Vida is the best description of my trip! I started to SUP Surf 6 months ago in Brazil and this was my first surf trip. Marco arranged a 6 day package that was fantastic. We went to surf 5:45 PM and again at 4:00 PM. They were giving me instructions and advices all the time, and I felt a... More

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
