Tamarindo Talk

November 16, 2012

Surfing legend Robert August has been the “surfing ambassador and in-house legend” over at Witch’s Rock Surf Camp for quite some time know. As part of his affiliation, the camp has been renting and selling his trademark “What I Ride” Surftech Tuflite models for the past year.

For those who don’t know, Tuflite is a revolutionary, lightweight surfboard construction that is stronger and more durable than the fiberglass surfboards. Now available at Witch’s Rock, the complete Robert August line in Tuflite can be rented for the camp or bought from the surf shop. Soon, these surfboards will also be available on their new online surf shop.

If you still want a traditional fiberglass board, Robert August is still shaping them and cranking out new ones each week at the Witch’s Rock beachfront shaping studio. For more information about any of these surfboards or about availability for Robert August seminars on shaping, call 2653-1238.

Mourning the loss of the GNC store in Villareal’s Fischel? Worry no more. You can now get the products in Tamarindo at two locations: Pacific Coast Gym in Haucas (200 meters west of SuperCompro, 2653-9026), and the Tamarindo Farmacia (across the street from Hotel El Milagro, 2653-0210).

Want a beauty treatment, but don’t want to travel? Now you can have your wish. Harmonia Pura will do manicures, pedicures, facials and Swedish massages in the comfort of your home or hotel at no extra cost. All services are performed by certified technicians. To schedule an appointment, call 8911-9628 or 8854-0206. You can also email harmonia-pura@gmail.com.
