Tamarindo Surf Academy
Tamarindo is by far the quintessential destination for learning to surf. Besides having multiple surf spots on a single beach, the waves here run the gamut of sizes and power. For novice surfers, the whitewater rolling up to shore has exactly the power you need to propel forward and learn to stand on your first ever wave. Once you can stand and it’s time to solidify those skills, Tama has waist-high waves just a few feet away.
