She had loads of enthusiasm and had the right balance between teaching and just being happy to make sure you enjoy your time, after all surfing is all about being chilled.

Mal Pais is a short distance south of Santa Teresa and it's well worth a visit to go to buy some fish, or even better, to go and catch some yourself with Peninsula Fishing!
We were fighting some less than ideal weather, but we still caught roosterfish, jack crevalle, snapper, bull shark (on popper), and amberjacks.
