Tips From Our Tamarindo Surf School: Private vs. Group Surf Lessons

Surfboard Rentals

Which surfboard should I use?

Each type of surfboard caters to different skill levels, wave conditions, and surfing styles, so choosing the right one depends on your level of experience and the type of waves you’ll be riding.

Here’s a quick rundown of the three main surfboard types you can rent at Iguana Surf Camp:

Funboard – Ideal for beginners to intermediate surfers.

A versatile board, typically between 7 to 8 feet in length, with a rounded nose and wider midsection. It offers more stability and paddle power than a shortboard, making it easier to catch waves. Funboards strike a balance between the agility of a shortboard and the stability of a longboard, making them ideal for progressing surfers looking for a forgiving ride.

Longboard – ideal for beginners, small wave conditions, and traditional surfers

Longboards are typically 9 feet or longer with a rounded nose and rounded pintail. They offer great stability and glide, making them easy to paddle and catch waves with. Longboards excel in small, mushy waves and are perfect for learning the fundamentals of surfing. They also allow for classic maneuvers like nose-riding and cross-stepping.

Shortboard – Ideal for intermediate to advanced surfers, larger and more powerful waves.

Shortboards are typically between 5’6″ to 7 feet in length with a pointed nose and a narrow, thin profile. They are designed for speed, maneuverability, and performing advanced maneuvers such as aerials and sharp turns. Shortboards excel in steeper, faster waves and are favored by experienced surfers looking for high-performance surfing.

What’s it like to spend Easter in Tamarindo? 

Easter week is a magical time to visit Tamarindo, with a vibrant atmosphere and plenty of festivities to enjoy. From beach parties to traditional ceremonies, there’s always something happening in town during Easter week. Plus, with warm temperatures and sunny skies, it’s the perfect time to hit the beach and soak up the sun between surf sessions.

Easter falls right in the heart of the dry season in our province, so it’s coincidentally the very best time to visit Guanacaste, weatherwise. 

Do keep in mind, however, that Easter is a hectic week all along the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. City dwellers head here in droves to enjoy the sun and surf. It’s a fantastic, sociable, and fun time to surf in Tamarindo, but things book out pretty quickly.

Book your surf camp package early to avoid missing out!
