If yes, then this event is perfect for you!

Limited to just 10 guests, join us as we explore the best surf spots in Costa Rica’s Guanacaste region. From local favorites to world-famous locations accessible only by boat, embark on an unforgettable surfing adventure.

Our journey begins at Playa Grande, just 5 minutes from Ananda Lodge, offering versatile beach breaks to kick off our surfing immersion. From there we will take a private boat trip to the famous Roca Bruja, better known as Witches Rock. We’ll hang ten at Ollies Point and Playa Negra, all made famous by one of the top surf films ever made, Endless Summer.

Exploring local gems in Guanacaste, like Playa Marbella, Playa Langosta, and Playa Avellanas, we’ll fine-tune our skills and ride the waves of some of the best spots in the region. And who knows? We might even uncover a secret spot or two for an unforgettable surfing experience!


When you’re not riding the waves, Ananda Lodge offers the perfect sanctuary for relaxation and rejuvenation. Experience our brand-new facilities, featuring single room accommodations with artisanal luxury touches and ocean-view suites, ensuring a comfortable and serene stay.


Nestled privately in the mountains of Playa Grande, our guests are treated to panoramic ocean views and refreshing ocean breezes. Take a dip and unwind in our ocean-view pool, or simply relax in the shade, serenaded by the sounds of monkeys and birds.


Join us at the main rancho or relax poolside as you watch the sunset over the Pacific. Take part in rejuvenating yoga sessions between surf sessions or treat yourself to a massage from one of our local professionals. Tell your best surf stories by the fire at night
