Want to get your SUP game on? There’s a new school in the surfing hotbed of Nosara, Costa Rica, geared up for just that.

Founded by Pacuare Outdoor Center owner Tom Ranieri, the new Tropical SUP Surf Academy is based in Nosara’s Playa Pelada on the Nicoya Peninsula, complete with accommodations in the beachside Casa Dos Mares.

Led by Jose Ruiz Avelas—who took second-place at Costa Rica’s SUP Nationals and spent five years at Nosara Paddlesurf, on of the top SUP schools in the world—the school offers five-day camps for all abilities, complete with multiple daily surf sessions, video analysis, a complete equipment quiver and more. The main season for the new Nosara school is November to August.

“Perfect waves, a world-class coach, and just being in Nosara, Costa Rica, makes this SUP camp arguably one of the top places to learn how to SUP surf anywhere,” says Ranieri. “I’m excited for people that thought they might have missed the boat on surfing. SUP surfing is possible for almost anyone and learning from a professional coach like Jose is going to make a lot of dreams come true. It’s a chance to introduce a great lifestyle to guests who we know will keep coming back for many years to come.”

The school also offers outings on the nearby Nosara River, where students can work on flatwater fundamentals before heading to the ocean, for everything from mellower beginner waves to those perfect for intermediate and advanced paddlers.

The school has more than 20 boards in its line-up, including those from Avelas’s sponsor, Infinity.

Even the first day, newcomers to the sport can expect to be riding waves.

“It’s probably one of the best places you can learn to SUP surf anywhere,” says Avelas. “We look forward to helping people learn the sport and sharing our beautiful location.”
