The forgiving surf breaks at Playa Tamarindo offer even beginners the thrill of surfing.  Here is a shot of Theresa surfing in one of her first attempts back in 2012. Surf-Costa Rica has a great overview of the surfing in the area - from Playa Tamarindo and Playa Grande for the rookies,  to Witch's Rock and Ollie's Point for the more advanced surfers. Below is a map of the area to give you a sense for the options available.
