I have seen them doing it on Lake Arenal if you will be in that area.

It's nice and protected in Playa Danta; near Playa Potrero. It's a nice place to spend the day and Lola's Norte is there too for lunch.

Nosara is great for SUP. There is a guy here named Spencer who teaches and rents. He can be found at Experience Nosara Adventure Tours.

Great guy. Everyone knows him, just ask around. Or, just watch the guys in the water everyday. Spencer is the tall guy with very blonde hair.

Tamarindo does have a growing contingent of SUP, both for wave riding and for cruising. One of my favorite routes is out around our "Capitan Island" and back. As for rentals and guides, there are about 5 different companies that provide these services here in town. Let us know if you need any more information.

Definitely all of Costa Rica's Pacific Coast is great for SUP both flatwater or surf. Tamarindo is a great town, you can SUP right in Tamarindo and there are many different, close by, awesome beaches with little Islands, protected coves and secluded beaches to SUP. We service the area, check us out here in Trip Advisor, Costa Rica SUP Stand Up Paddle Adventures, in Tamarindo.
