Tamarindo Talk

July 31, 2009

The ninth annual Robert August Surf and Turf, the charity surfing and golf tournament with the legend himself, was set to kick off yesterday and run through Aug. 4. It will once again benefit the children of our community through its collaboration with the nonprofit CEPIA. Events include a welcome barbecue at the Best Western, a surf day, dinner, golf at Hacienda Pinilla, event party, catamaran tour, Witch’s Rock and Ollie’s tour and more. For more information, contact Robert Twine at rtwine@turfsafari.com or 8877-7209.

Indigo Home, out near the two ferreterías, has just partnered with FJ Fabrics Escazú to distribute Tommy Bahama, Waverly and Fabricut fabrics and Phantom retractable screen products in Guanacaste. You will be able to see this all in the Indigo Home showroom and design center, which will be reopening soon. Meanwhile, the store is featuring artist Suzanne Morgan Wilkins and her locally inspired pieces.

Check out the new Cardio Kickboxing Class at TamarindoFitnessCenter every Monday and Wednesday at 6 p.m. All you need to bring is a towel, water and boxing gloves if you have them. For more information, drop by the gym at the back of town.

Witch’s Rock Surf Camp now offers yacht service running down to Panama, the Southern Zone, Witch’s Rock and Ollie’s Point, Nicaragua and other spots. According to owner Joe Walsh, this is the “ultimate surfing experience” aboard a 48-foot Grand Banks multiday surf charter yacht named Zori. The boat has three staterooms, two bathrooms, a large galley, saloon area and tons of deck space.

The normal rate is $300 per person a day. For more information, call 2653-1238 or e-mail witchsrocksurfcamp@gmail.com. Laguna del Cocodrilo continues to offer its three-course $20 menu for the rest of the rainy season. Diners choose from three different appetizers, main courses and desserts for this special price. The restaurant is across the street from Best Western Tamarindo Vista Villas.

Got hair that needs stylin’? Illustrious hairstyling duo David Miles and Kevin Hagarman of Washington, D.C., are now permanently based in Langosta at Cerca del Mar. For a cut or color, call them at 2653-0839 or 8844-4335.
