It’s time to take those surf skills learned at Assateague to the next level with Surf Costa Rica! We’ll be adventuring to Nosara, which is a great mix of international surf culture, stunning back-road topography, jungled microclimates, and a wildlife refuge. It resembles Malibu, Oahu’s North Shore and Byron Bay Australia, and yet it’s completely unique in its own way. Three stunning beaches are stitched together by a network of swerving, rutted earth roads that meander over coastal hills and kiss the coast. We will hone your surf skills on Nosara’s best tropical beaches before exploring the classic beach break of Marbella. Marbella doesn’t have the usual touristy spots, but does have an amazing and friendly barreling wave coming off a sandbar. The perfect spot to score! Sign up with Calleva today, and make memories that will last a lifetime. Pura Vida!
