| COSTA RICA ROAD TRIP
(in association with Big Friday)

LOCATION:Tamarindo, Nosara, Santa Teresa
Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica
Amazing waves, surfing in boardies or bikinis on stunning tropical beaches, jungle wildlife, delicious food .. this is the trip of a lifetime!
Our 10 day road trip takes us from Tamarindo in Northern Guanacaste on the Pacific Coast, down to Nosara on the Nicoya Peninsula, and then further south to Santa Teresa. Its an adventurous journey with rugged and beautiful scenery, beach driving, river crossings and incredible surfing. With our team of experienced guides and coaches we will ensure that you are surfing the right waves for you every day.
THE ROAD TRIP
Our first destination Tamarindo, is home for 2 nights. We will be surfing the breaks right on our doorstep as well as driving to nearby beaches such as Playa Avellanas or Playa Negra. Other activities in Tamarindo include Yoga, watching the giant leatherback turtles in Las Baulas National Park, day spas, horse riding and of course sunset watching!
On Day 3 we will head South 3 hrs, surfing some quieter spots en route to the relaxed beach community of Nosara on the Nicoya Peninsula. Here we will spend three days surfing the local breaks .. keen Yogis might want to visit the Nosara Yoga Institute.
Day 6 will take us on an adventurous and scenic drive even further south to the sleepy beach town of Santa Teresa. River crossings a plenty and lots of opportunities to stop and check different breaks. With a beach crossing on the way we will have to time our journey by the tides. Its another 4 hr drive and with a few stops en route we expect to make it to Santa Teresa in time for a sunset surf!
Our last 4 days in Santa Teresa will be packed full of surfing and if you need a break from the waves for a day or an afternoon we can take a hike to the local waterfalls, zipline through the rainforest canopy, take an SUP or quad bike tour, or you can choose to chill out by the pool at the hotel, do some Yoga or have a massage…

Welcome to the best Ski Trip ever! At the Kingsurf / HOFNAR chalet
We love skiing and boarding just as much as surfing and wanted to share our passion for the sports with everyone! So from popular interest over the last few years, the boys at Kingsurf have finally decided to organise and deliver a ski package for Winter 2013/14 whoop!
The idea came about a few years ago when we realized that we had reached an age and level of experience where we should no longer being doing seasons for other companies and should enter what our girlfriends and parents called the real world! We feel this way of life is too good to lose so we made it our "real world" and now want to share it with as many people as possible!
We already have a large database of customers from the surf school and feel that if we can put all these like minded wonderful people together in the mountains and give them the same service they receive at the beach then it should make for a successful ski holiday.
Morzine has been chosen as the location for our trips! It is situated in the heart of the Portes du Soleil, which offers over 650kms of marked pistes, along with easy access to big bowls, winding runs, steep gulleys, gentle valleys and sparkling forests; providing an extensive variety for all standards of skiers and snowboarders! This is why it is our favourite resort for Winter fun.
The HOFNAR / KingSki Chalet is a pretty and traditional wooden chalet. More pictures coming soon!
Our aim is to make sure you guys
have the best holiday possible with us.
