Pura Vida Costa Rica Teen Surf Camp
We’ve made some exciting changes to our Teen Costa Rica Surf & Adventure Camp to make it more epic than ever before! Teens ages 14-18 are invited to embark on this two week surf-filled adventure designed for beginner to advanced surfers from July 1-14, 2012. With four professional surf instructors leading this camp, surfers of all abilities will receive personalized coaching as we explore several of Costa Rica’s best breaks. We’ll spend our first week in Playa Avellanas and our second in Playa Grande, providing campers with the opportunity to surf a variety of waves.
To provide comfort to both campers and parents, we offer campers the option of flying out of the Atlanta International Airport (ATL) with one of our Trip Leaders into the Liberia International Airport (LIR). Campers will have their choice of boards from our full quiver or you may bring up to two of your own.
With a 3:1 camper to instructor ratio, the personalized coaching each participant will receive during this camp is unmatched. Skills become more refined and confidence soars to an all-time high. More advanced surfers will learn new maneuvers and break out of their comfort zones while less experienced surfers will progress to paddling into their own waves and learning about wave dynamics. Other awesome activities include a rainforest zip-line tour, whitewater rafting down the Colorado River, exploring volcanoes and rafting in the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano National Park, and learning conversational Spanish. Come immerse yourself in the tropical waters of Costa Rica and experience Pura Vida (Pure Life) first hand.
Parents can rest easy knowing that Costa Rica is one of the safest and easiest international travel destinations in the surfing world. It is an extremely safe and sustainable country with no standing military. Their focus is on creating greater equality of wealth among citizens and protecting their natural resources. Over a quarter of the country has already been set aside for conservation. With a brand new renovated international airport in Liberia and well-maintained highways, Costa Rica is very welcoming to tourists. Most of its people have learned to speak great English and they accept the US dollar as currency.
