Imagine this…..

You’ve always wanted to learn how to surf in Costa Rica, and after a few lessons and several hours of paddling your heart out, you did it.  Precariously standing on your rented surf board, you’re wishing you had someone other than your mother standing on the shoreline to capture this momentous occasion.  This is where Matosfilms comes to the rescue!

Matosfilms was founded by Marcelo Matos and is based in Playa Grande Costa Rica. Matosfilms Surf Photos and Video Productions has offered their surf photography service since 2001. Matos came to Costa Rica from Uruguay and has  15 years working in TV production and professional photography.

Shooting surfing pictures from both land and water, Mastosfilms uses the best Canon camera equipment to produce high resolution digital photographs and video footage.

Playa Tamarindo, Guanacaste—Great for the beginner surfer

For the surfing beginners, Tamarindo has warm water, offshore winds, and consistent breaks which make for perfect learning waves.  Surf board rental and lessons are available.



Playa Grande, Guanacaste—Best left for the intermediate to advanced surfer

If you are an experienced surfer, then Playa Grande is your best surfing spot. With fewer people, this beach offers powerful breaks that are a lot larger than the waves in Playa Tamarindo.

Other nearby surfing hotspots in the Nicoya Peninsula include:

Olivers point, Witches Rock (boat access only), Playa Langosta, Playa Avellanas and Playa Negra are all fantastic surfing spots in Costa Rica.
