4 Single males, Novice Surfers, Aged 24-27 location ideas

HI, 4-5 of us are going to Costa Rica for a week trip. Two week total but, we want to rent a beach house for a week in one spot that has the following:

1) Good night life

2) Somewhat safe, we will rent scooters for the whole duration. HAve been through Belize City on scooters, Indonesia etc so safety isn't a huge concern but its a small factor.

3) Good beach waves for beginner/novice surfers. We do like height though, just not very good so will crash.

What we have found:

Jaco

Cabo Matapalo

Montezuma

Going Early may.

We want a place that has lots of options, want to scooter to other beaches, clubs, towns etc.

Thanks everyone that answers.

Cabo Matapalo has zero nightlife, and is an expensive area to stay. Montezuma is a tiny town, very surfing one, and you can use ATV to reach either two places there, Mal Pais or Santa Teresa. I assume best nightlife is in Jaco, and surfing is not bad either. Easy approach from SJO airport. Just didn't see many scooters on the road, anywhere in Costa Rica.

Nightlife+Surfing=Tamarindo, surely?
