I'm hoping to get on the board whilst I'm in SJDS. I'm a budget traveller, so hoping to keep my costs to a minimum. What are the best beaches around SJDS for a beginner surfer? Would you recommend getting a surf lesson or just practising on your own? I've had beginner lessons a couple of years ago, but haven't surfed since. Is it cheaper to do it in Nica or Costa Rica? As I'm planning to go to Tamarindo after SJDS.
