Is it possible to rent a good board down there.  I'd rather not travel with one.  Thanks

Depending on where you are going to be probably yes.  I know fischer bros in Jaco and hermosa rent out brand new boards.  Some other surf shops i heard did too.  You can definitly find a good board to rent down there.

Facing the same dilemna.  Figure I can probably rent a pretty decent board while I'm in the Tamarindo area.  But what about Dominical?  Any decent rental options there?  I don't plan on circling back up to Tamarindo, so can't really keep the same rental for the whole trip.

You can rent boards at most places.  Littler towns might not have the exact size you are looking for, so keep that in mind.  (having to go from a longboard to a 6 footer isnt easy, believe me!) I went in Nov. and most places charge $10-$30 a day.  Make sure to find places that will rent you the board for 24hrs. If you are staying in one place for more than a couple weeks or traveling within adjacent areas, i would suggest buying a board.... saves you $$ (if you can sell it back before you leave) and allows for more flexable surfing times.

Tamarendo has lots of places to rent (the banana place is the best i think) and lots of people (travelers, not shops) looking to sell and buy boards.

Jaco also has tons of places to rent and lots of both shops and travelers looking to rent/buy.
