Paradise Surf Shop is pleased to announce its new partnership with Split Peaks Surf Adventures

Split Peaks Surf Adventures - the all new surf adventure resort located in Nosara, Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica. Split Peaks Surf Adventure is not just a surf camp, but a true adventure in the tropical beach life style of Nosara, Costa Rica.

Paradise Surf Shop owner, Sally Smith, has hooked up with Split Peaks Surf Adventures owners and Santa Cruz natives, Anna Garaway and Annie Allegretti. "We've been talking about this for a long time and now the dream is coming to fruition -- to have more than just a surf camp but a true surf adventure in Costa Rica," said Smith.

"Anna and Annie approached me a while back and asked if I'd be interested in sponsoring their program in Costa Rica. I was totally for it from the minute they told me their idea," said Smith. "This is something I've always wanted to do -- but with my commitment to operating my retail store and local lessons I just haven't been able to get away to work out the details. Anna and Annie have spent a lot of time in Costa Rica and took that task on themselves. Now they've created this wonderful adventure tour that I'm stoked to be sponsoring!" added Smith.

The adventure begins with an eight day/seven night stay in a luxurious beach villa in Nosara, Costa Rica. The villa is minutes away from Playa Guiones, a beautiful 5 kilometer (3.1 miles) long, white sand beach. Playa Guiones is in the center of the Nicoya Peninsula's Gold Coast. The villa accommodations at Split Peaks are located just 200 meters from the beach. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included each day.

Each day will begin with yoga. Then it's off to hit the surf with two lessons daily. If conditions don't allow for surfing, you can go snorkeling, turtle watching, horseback riding, hiking, or a road trip to a nearby town for shopping. The adventure package also includes one complimentary professional sports massage, a complimentary canopy tour where you will zip through the jungle enjoying Costa Rica's abundant wildlife, and at the end of your trip you will receive a personal goody bag full of great surf stuff like wax, sunscreen, leash, a towel, a rash guard and more!

Sign up now for "early bird" specials for upcoming November retreats.
