Advice - Surfing destination

« on: January 05 2008 17:01:00 »


I want to learn to surf somewhere, I'm a snowboarder & a wakeboarder and I've done a bit of wake surfing. I'm living in British Columbia, Canada right now.

I'm trying to figure the best place to go, somewhere in Mexico or the Caribbean. I'm looking a destination where I can stay in a cheaper all-inclusive, rent equipment nearby, and take a few lessons. Attractive local women and a night life is a strong plus.

I'm thinking early march for my vacation.

Any suggestions you can give me would be appreciated, thanks.

Try Costa Rica for good waves everyday for every level.  Check out to see the waves.  Check out for the best camp and instruction.  My 22 yr old daughter has been to 4 and she says that she learned more in 1 day here than a week at the others.

Also the Pacific side is easy to get to from BC ... fly into San Jose.  Jim picks up his surfers at the airport.  We fly in from Toronto and this is our 3rd time.  BTW, he was the world longboard champ in 95 and 96.  Place his surfers stay is 5 mins from Jaco which is a town with lots of action.  Just don't go when my daughter is there :)
