Nicole, There are lots of good surf spots in and around Tamarindo. If you're a beginner then stick to Tamarindo but if you're more advanced you can also go to Playa Grande, Langosta, Avellanas and Negra.

I would rent a board in town. There's only about 10,000 available. :)

Hello Nicole..

Andrea from WAVES( a surf shop located at the entrance in Tamarindo) she have really good prices and if you don't have transportation to go to other beaches you can talk with her, she have the "surf bus" to take you to the better spots for surf around Tamarindo and nearby beaches.

A nice place
