Tamarindo Talk

October 2, 2009

Did you know the Coastal Spanish Institute here in Tamarindo has a partner program called the Costa Rica Surf Institute? It offers surf programs to the Spanish-language students, usually over a two-week period, with the goal of self-sufficiency in the water after that time. They achieve this task with a series of lessons, seminars, video analysis and trips to other breaks outside Tamarindo. The two weeks cost $370, including board rental and rash guards.

In addition, the institutes offer one-hour ashtanga yoga classes to their students and the public on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 5:15 p.m. The cost is $10 per class or $30 per week. For more information on any of these activities, contact Alex Hazell at alexhazell40@googlemail.com, or visit www.costaricasurfinstitute.com.

Witch’s Rock Surf Camp has installed a new biodiesel reactor and has trained its staff how to use it. This means they are now converting used cooking oil from Eat @Joe’s Restaurant – as well as used cooking oil from FT’s and the Barceló resort – to power their shuttle vans and surf yacht.

Last time I reported that Crystal Liquors had closed. It turns out I was wrong; it just moved locations. The beverage business is now situated in a new store right next to Lazy Wave.
