This is my 3rd time working with Marco! He's the man down there and will get you what you need and send you to the right spot. I contacted him prior to my trip to rent a performance SUP for my vaca. He knew my surfing style and gave him specs what i surf at home. He gave me several options in my range. The board was great quality and worked out awesome for the trip. Much easier than lugging a SUP through the airport and to the house. He also gave me pointers and some awesome tips to help my surfing one day I met up with him taking pics of another SUP guy. Super good guy!! Most highly recommended in the area

Marco, Jose, and Lydia do a truly fantastic job, this is a great experience for anyone interested in paddlesurf! The structure was perfect for us, our routine was an early morning surf session, followed by breakfast and a nap! When we woke we'd explore Tamarindo on our own and meet up with Marco at our leisure in the afternoon for more local surfing, talk about relaxing! Marco is always there when needed while simultaneously giving you enough space to explore Costa Rica in your own way. Jose is a great waterman and a wonderful resource for surf instruction. Lydia is a complete sweetheart and incredibly accommodating. Pura vida!

I highly recommend SUP Stand Up Adventures! You're never "Just another customer" to the crew there. Attention to your needs, ability and most of all your safety, are met with high standards. Put your hometown attitude on the rack before you arrive. The Costa Rica vibe is the most giving I've ever been a part of. You'll learn that respect and care is what truly makes you. The endless surf locations are always dedicated to meet your needs and is dictated by mother nature. It's amazing how it can be waist high but within a 30 minute drive and location change, it can be head high just like that! Did I mention no crowds? That's right, knowledge and timing avoids the crowds as Stand Up Adventures keeps a limit on heads in the lineup. So in a nut shell, if you can tolerate a group of professionals caring for you, uncrowded breaks, lining you up with excellent equipment to meet your needs, taking you to the best breaks that the area can offer, then you've found your SUP Adventure!!!! You will not be disappointed. Not true, you will have to go home when your trip is over. Trust me, you're not going to want to leave. Pura Vida !!!!
