Combining a beginner with an early intermediate surfer!

« on: January 26 2005 08:01:00 »


I am heading to CR next week with my girlfriend for 3 months (nice).  She is more-or-less a beginner (ie. she's stood up in the mush) and I'm let's say early intermediate (ie I can make bottom turns on a short-board and go down the line).

We're here to chill out and enjoy the surf.  My question is if anyone has some recommendations for places to visit that the surf would be suitable for her to learn on and for me to improve?  In other words not too heavy?

A surf camp is kinda outta the question because of the $$$.

I'd appreciate any tips.  Thanks a million, and Pura Vida!

I enjoyed the Jaco area when I was there.  Good for beginner-Intermediates, and Hermosa's close for a bit more of a challenge (didn't get to surf that).  Plus, I imagine if your g/f is only just learning still she's not gonna want to surf all the time and there's plenty of things to do and places to see round here.  Enjoy.
