What's included on this experience...


One Surf Lesson

 Tamarindo is one of the premiere surfing beaches in Costa Rica, particularly for beginners. So, If you’ve never popped up on a board before, no worries! We have a badass local surf instructor and good friend Reiner at La Palapa Surf Rental that will help you understand how to catch and stay on a wave. 
 
Surfs up chica! 

"The best surfer out there is the one having the most fun."

What your day would look like with Forward We Grow...

A theme for every experience...

On every experience we chose a topic that we believe will resonate or spark inspiration with every participant. We will cover a topic every evening that will be related to our theme. These topics will include journal activities that will be shared each morning when we gather for breakfast. These topics are meant to get us talking and making connections. To learn and grow from one another. 
Before we flow togher the sun will begin rising over the mountains and waking up the howler monkies, that will in turn wake you up! This time is meant for you to grab a cup of coffee, journal or simply soak in the natural beauty around you...

7:00 am: Morning Flow ...will get you  centered and warmed up for the exciting day ahead.  Our platform over looks the ocean and gives you this complete feeling of serenity. This overwelming feeling that you can do anything.

8:30 am: Breakfast....consisting of fresh local fruit, eggs, beans and rice.  Every morning we  willtake time to discuss our topic from the previous evening.

9:45 am - 11:45 am : Free time... to swim  in the pool, dicuss, journal, soak up the sun or ride down to Playa Conchal. Walk along the beach or swim in the turqoise bay. 

12:00 pm: Lunch... Greek salad with toasted chickpeas and quinoa, either at our casa or packed for on the go!  

1:30 pm: Leave for Tamarindo...about a 30 minute drive into town. On our journey you'll see cattle freely walking the road as many animals do in Costa Rica. 

2:00 pm: Surf Lessons.... with our buddy Reiner! The feeling of riding on a surf board for the first time, will be one you will never forget.  If its not for you...no biggie relax on the beach and find yourself a fresh coconut to sip on! 

4:00 pm -5:15pm: Head to Casa Brisas...if we have time we will stay to watch the sunset or make our way home. Surf lessons are incredbily exhausting!

6:00 pm: Dinner.... a cauliflower rice burrito bowl will be filling after exerting so much energy, made with love by our nuturing cook. During dinner we will lead a  group dicussion about  a topic related to our theme!
