We arrived on New Years Day late at night, slightly tired after attending a wedding in Colombia and wondering if we were up for 4 days of surfing. The next morning all possible concerns were gone the moment we woke up and saw the Pacific, looked around at the beautiful house and realised that we found our small paradise here in Costa Rica. This feeling never left us the days we spend together with the Kalon team.
Having only done some windsurfing in the past (which was of little use I discovered), the surf coaches made you feel eager to go and keep having fun, even if you kept on falling off the board. The video analysis made actually learning how to surf easier and quicker because you could see where you could improve. The most impressed I was when my 12 year old daughter was struggling and the whole team supported her and got her going again. I think they were even clapping, whistling and yelling louder than she was when she rode her first waves again. I think anyone that wants to learn or improve how to surf can benefit from the Kalon Surf approach. My body was tired but I wanted to keep on going surfing, so enjoyable was it !
Besides the surfing, the most impressive was how all other elements of the experience like the house, the rooms, the food and the Kalon team came together to give you the feeling that you are staying with some old friends who do their best to make you feel at home because they want you to stay as long as you want and come back whenever you feel like. If that was the intention then it worked for a 100%, since my daughter already asked when we are going back and with nowadays the easy connections between Europe and Costa Rica, this will certainly happen !
