You will begin with a 20 to 30 minute on-shore lesson. This includes water-safety review and Stand Up Paddling (SUP) basics to get you prepared for the water. From there, we will head onto the water and begin practicing the elements we reviewed on shore, then off for a 1 hour to 1.5 hour tour/excursion where you'll see local wildlife with LED lights to guide us as the sun goes down, put in some exercise, and enjoy the beautiful Costa Rica coastline from a different perspective.
I’m the founder of Coastal Balance SUP Lifestyle Co. I began this company with a mission to provide a channel for local SUP tour guides and to expose people to our beautiful ocean. We want people to have a more balanced lifestyle and to develop a link to aquatic ecosystems -- also, we ensure that 10% of every booking is donated to ocean-conservation nonprofits. I enjoy paddling in SoCal, PNW, and now the Central Pacific of Costa Rica. I partner with local water guides to offer a specialized experience; lessons and tours are available for people ages 7 to 65, in small- and large-group settings.
