The best people to SUP surf with in Costa Rica!"

Reviewed January 3, 2017

 After hours of research, decided on Playa Negra SUP Wave Riders. I booked all of the rest of my accommodation and travel accordingly.

I was in Playa Negra for 8 full days. Kevin put together a package of lessons and board and bike rentals for me, customized to my specific needs and goals. For example, he made it possible for me to move to smaller boards, as my balance improved over time. In 5 lessons and some practice time on my own, I went from being a SUP beginner to catching and surfing waves comfortably.

I have a broad range of experience with other paddle sports. I have a decade of experience as a flat water canoeing instructor.
Kevin is one of the best paddle sports instructors that I have worked with.

SUP in the mangroves is a magnificent way to experience authentic Costa Rica!
Kevin and Joanne were total pros at SUP! My friends and I really enjoyed our experience and if you haven't seen mangroves while paddling through the smooth waters of the estuary it is a magnificent sight to see. Definitely include it in your Costa Rica plans - it is authentic CR! Kevin and Joanne made it completely safe, took wonderful pictures for us and Kevin was like our human encyclopedia regarding the estuaries, wildlife and weather patterns in the area. We loved it and will book them again on our next visit. Thank you Kevin and Joanne!!!
