Its been a long time since we have the time to write something on our blog to share with our campers and fellow surfers, this past 3 years or so of blank space, where not blank at all, for us at Tortuga Surf camp.

We grew like never before, and thanks to that we where able to add more water men and women to our team, in this opportunity we want to share the history of Marina & the sea, our best and longest lasting host ever!

We first meet Marina about 8 years ago when we where just starting and she was on her first few visits to the country, Costa Rica, the land of Pura Vida, only to not know she will be trapped by the magic of this place and it would ask her to return to its warm waves of the central pacific and of its people. we knew from that moment this was a water person, since this is something you have in you... no matter where you come from.

Trips keep getting longer and the distance from time to time we would see her would be shorter until eventually we knew the moment to have Marina close to the sea forever was coming.

Our friend is an ocean and traveling enthusiast, there for it was only natural we would ask for this great friend to step in and help us with the hosting and our growth, and boy did she do that!

After a long season, our German water women is going home again, but by now we know we should not weep for we know it wont be long before Marina reunites with her sea.

See you soon friend!

From the time he arrived to Costa Rica everyone at Tortuga Surf Camp knew this one was a going to be a special guest for our Surf Camp, at only 21 years old our friend Nils told one of our instructors he always dreamed of surfing on a short board, and our crew made sure they let him know the road was going to be a bumpy but fun road and Playa Jaco, was the right place to start that road on!


Like every other surfer, his dreams started from very small or i should say very big, since beginners boards are Huge and hard to control! and as the time went by and the practices and work outs started to pay back the board numbers started lowering.
We decided to do a few trips and going away from Jaco Beach was the best for his surfing, and right there in front of our eyes, a surfer was a born!



For 42 days, trough surf lesson and surf trips this kid endured every conditions our waters had for him and we have to say with pride, we are all blown away by his commitment and skill, we will surely miss you Nils, the German surfer, the longest camper ever!



Pura Vida and see you soon!

This past November 3th we had one of our many events with a social impact called Dreams on waves hosted by the foundation by the same name Sueños Sobre las Olas right here in Playa Jaco Costa Rica...
This guys are a none profit org that helps Kids & Adults with physical disabilities and trough surfing they want to show them that there is a way!


And that regardless of your condition there will always be a way to accomplish what you want if you really set your mind to it!
This was not our first event with them and we are sure it wont be the last! For us in Tortuga Surf School & Camps is extremely important to share this blessing called surfing to all, specially to those in need, or all those children in social risk who need a guide to find the right path.
This post goes to those heroes like Richie and Laura and so many others who make this water dreams possible, and for letting us be a part of this magical circle.
To join or contribute with dreams on waves check our Tortuga Gives back section for more info.
