Here at Vista Guapa Surf Camp, we are so excited about the next Marko’s Mardi Gras YOLO Experience at our facilities in wonderful Jaco Beach. We are planning an awesome surf and fun adventure with standup paddleboard (SUP) sessions and excursions during a week from February 14th to 20th, 2015.
In our SUP camps you’ll hang out with our staff and a great group of new friends, besides learning how to SUP and improving your skills. Vista Guapa offers an unique experience surrounded by beautiful landscapes, where you will also learn the culture of “Pura Vida” being part of our family.
Each SUP lesson will be taught according to your surfing knowledge and will be set under the guidance of a professional surfing team led by Alvaro Solano, a seven-time national surfing champion and one-time masters champion.
Our camp features instruction by Alvaro as well as a small staff of local, experienced surf and SUP experts. In addition to surfing, a typical stay at Vista Guapa includes transportation to and from the San Jose International Airport, breakfast, lunch/snack and dinner each day, an excursion to one of Costa Rica’s national parks or similar cultural activity, and beautiful air-conditioned accommodations in a bungalow overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
“This is a true escape from the daily grind,” says Mark Salvetti, Vista Guapa’s “Chief Inspiration Officer” and one of the guides for the YOLO SUP experience. “A stay at Vista Guapa is a life-changing adventure.”
Mark Salvetti is a longtime friend and Alumni to Vista Guapa Surf Camp and was instrumental in bringing SUP to Vista Guapa and Costa Rica. Mark is a Level II WPA Instructor and Level III PaddleFIT Coach, guests at all surfing and SUP Paddle sessions benefit from Mark and Alvaro’s paddle knowledge and technique to ensure proper surf etiquette and form.
