Need tips on surfing and traveling in Central America

« on: November 10 2010 22:11:00 »

I'm planning on traveling through Central America for a month starting in February. I would love to learn how to surf but don't know really where to start (so many options). I was looking for suggestions on what are best locations for beginners to learn, and where I should go for affordable lessons. I plan on surfing during my whole trip but I just need a few tips on how I should go about this since I'm a beginner. I will be flying into either Nicaragua or Costa Rica at the start of my trip and will most likely stay in hostels if that helps with any suggestions.
