Academy Overview

Our SUPSurf Academy offers small-size courses with attention to service and running our operation on a personalized level. All guests are evaluated at the start and end of each course. Video analysis is done breaking down every move made, ocean knowledge while being a lifelong course is discussed, the surfing lifestyle is shared, and a lot of coffee is shared for those looking to do dawn patrol!

Costa Rica is a mecca for surfing, and the waves are sized perfectly for those looking to learn. Join us as our only goal is to keep you smiling and helping us spread a new pandemic of the love for SUP Surfing and the lifestyle it brings.

Sup Surfing
Beginner Friendly

Do you have a passion for being near the ocean, and you feel that just sitting in the sand doesn’t do it anymore? The fast-growing sport of SUP Surfing has made visiting the beach an entirely new experience.

With the learning curve easier than traditional pop-up surfing, the SUP Surf wave changing people’s lives is now easier than ever to join.

Our passion for water has taught us that there is so much more to river rafting or 1-hour surf classes. There are entirely new lifestyles and possible adventures with just a little effort.

After one week, we have seen people become total SUPSurf addicts from never getting on a board to in only three days doing bottom turns and becoming a lifelong surfer.

Während der Planung unserer mehrwöchigen Costa Rica Reise sind wir auf das Pacuare Outdoor Center gestoßen und haben dort einen 2-Tages Raftingtour inkl. Übernachtung in der zugehörigen Lodge gebucht. Zugegeben, der auf den ersten Blick etwas hohe Preis hat mich anfangs nachdenklich gemacht, aber was die Jungs (und Damen) vom Outdoor Center im Laufe dieser 2 Tage geboten haben, war absolut spitze. Das Rafting am (doch ziemlich anspruchsvollen) Pacuare River an sich ist schon ein tolles Erlebnis. Mit einem sehr symphatischen Guide an Bord und einem separaten Safety-Begleiter haben wir uns, obwohl wir Neulinge in diesem Bereich sind, immer absolut sicher gefühlt. Zweimal gabs Mittagessen am Fluss, zubereitet von den beiden Guides, absolut top. Die Lodge liegt direkt im Regenwald, in den großen und sehr sauberen Zimmern (bzw. Häuschen) gibts kein Licht, also nur romantischen Kerzenschein, dafür aber Toilette und Dusche. Es ist ein absoltues Erlebnis einmal mitten im Urwald schlafen zu gehen, ohne Lichter ringsum, nur die Natur. Toll, Toll, Toll. Abends gabs ein gemeinsames Abendessen das die Guides zubereitet haben (und die können wirklich kochen 😁). Bier und Wein gabs kostenlos mit dazu. Zudem gabs noch einenen Zipline Parcours und einen Tarzan Swing (kostenlos) mit dazu. Ich kann mich nur bei dem Team bedanken, dass sie uns dieses unvergessliche Erlebnis ermöglicht haben. Einfach ausprobieren wenn ihr die Möglichkeit dazu habt. Es lohnt sich wirklich, weil es in Erinnerung bleibt!

Proper training before rafting, canopying, hiking, Tarzan swing.. Best trip ever- I highly recommend! Bungalows where you sleep are so cool! Thank you to the entire staff - I feel like family after leaving there! Thank you!

Wow. It’s hard to put into words how fantastic our stay here was. Every last bit of the experience was top notch, but what will really stick in our memories was our rafting experience. Our guide Mateo was charming, kind and made us feel safe. What a trip!
