CRT,

Surf sup rental tips in Nosara these days? Also have family with us so regular tour boards or outing spots near bays, or protected areas, reefs, wildlife, etc.

There's a couple of places in Nosara that rent boards.  Chaco has a stand at the end of the main drag by the parking lot.  I'm going next week Nov 16th-24th and gonna do a drive thru from Hermosa to Nosara.  There's a billion little locals spots on the way.  I remember going to CR w/ a SUP and being the only guy out on one.  It was cool, cause everyone was stoked to figure out what I was doing-now its widespread.

Don't have experience w/ anyone in Nosara, but I'm sure there are a few...there is a thread w/ BlueZone which seems like they have it dialed...  If you are anywhere near tamarindo on the way down to Nosara, check out Marco.... he's here on the zone and I'd recommend him in a heartbeat....

Just Back-waves were awesome, took my 9.10 AW and it was amazing in overhead waves.  Forgot what an all purpose board they really are!

Where did you end up catching good surf?  How was the trip?

Went to Hermosa, Esterillos Centro, some places around Caldera, Nosara and a few spots around there.  Broke my leg in Hermosa!  My son is headed there Friday for a week-he's prolly hitting Mal Pais/santa Teresa with some friends unless it blows up in Pavones (unlikely this time of yr).

Definitely possible and worth it.... but it's also pretty prob gonna be a little cheaper to bring your own depending on who you fly with....

If you want to rent...   www.costaricasupadventures.com    in Tamarindo is the only outfit I would recommend...give Marco a call, he's a great guy and a Zoner and he'll give you a great board at a very reasonable price....

PM me if you'd like to get together for a surf or paddle sometime when you are there...

 Pura Vida to all SUPers out there.  From Freedom Riding SUP in Mal Pais,,,,, all I have to say is that for surfing and SUP Wave Riding, Costa Rica is the best!! Just in the last three years there have been various Paddle Board Companies popping up all over the Country, and just about all of them are creating a great service, you can't really go wrong,,,,,,,with most of them.   Two Marcoses in Tamarindo, they are both worth looking up. Nosara has various well reputed companies. Jaco you have Vista Guapa, and "SUPers Costa Rica" and a few others. Uvita has a new SUP company, they are good people. Near Pavones there are a few operations, perfect waves and good vibes.  In Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean side, you can find a SUP company right there in town, that can give you a unique Caribbean SUP experience.   Costa Rica is the best!!!! Get down here ASAP!!!
