We've recently returned from a week long surf camp at Innocent Surf & can not wait to get back! The accommodations, meals, & most importantly-the surfing instruction, truly surpassed our expectations. My friend & I packed up our 13 year old sons, said goodbye to the husbands & the 4 of us headed to Nosara for Spring Break 2010.
We found I.S.'s tasteful chalets roomy, comfortable, private & secure. The resort's lush, tropical landscaping further enhanced the tranquility. Even with meals included, it was so nice to have the well-equipped kitchen, especially with two hungry teenagers.
The overall layout & design of the resort represents the epitome of "attention to detail". At the upper level, along with a very inviting pool, is an outdoor common area, complete with a cozy sectional, surfing library, board games, & a lap-top, just in case you need to check your e-mail. Adjacent to that, is the dining area, complete with a large flat screened t.v., where guests are treated to surfing dvds & video analysis of their own moves. Adjacent to that is Gem's awesome outdoor kitchen, where you can watch her effortlessly prepare your lovely, delicious, & very healthy meals.
As nice as the accommodations were, however, we were there for only one thing: SURFING! Once again, we were not disappointed. The extremely high caliber of the instruction we received at Innocent Surf is what truly puts them in a league all their own.
In addition to being skilled, articulate surf coaches, both in & out of the water, the I.S. crew is warm, witty, & charming.
We truly had an awesome experience, learned so much & thanks to Coach Alex, the boys are now eager to compete in our local ESA contests. Thank you Innocent Surf, for everything!
