I’ve always wanted to learn how to surf, and I easily could — I live in San Jose, and it’s a small hop, skip, and jump over to Santa Cruz or up to coast to Mavericks. However… the Pacific is freezing. And I could don a huge wetsuit to surf, but wouldn’t it just be better to learn how to surf in warm waters?
As reminded by this Reddit thread, I’ve had a hankering to go to Costa Rica and learn to surf there for years now. Ideally, I’d like to go for three weeks, to a camp that specialized in surfing as well as yoga. Perhaps some Costa Rica exploring activities during the day as well.
Hopefully within a year I’ll be surfing in Costa Rica!
