Anunorgettablesail, sansinstructor 
I’m in Nosara, Costa Rica’s sur haven. Learningto sur has been on my list or a long time, soI’m psyched to be here. This sleepy town isremote — the only way to get here is down along, rocky dirt road — and you can’t get morelaid-back: Picture one-o-a-kind boutique hotels,cantinas and sur shops. Nearly everyone I seeis bareoot and carrying a board.The

sits just steps rommy bungalow at eco-riendly Harmony Hotel. Nota traditional dormlike sur camp where you suron a schedule, ISS oers an a la carte lessonplan, which is great or honeymooners who wantsome private time. Classes are oered in stages1 to 4 (beginner to pro), with lessons by the dayor week, private or in a group. Some peoplecome or weeks; others, just a ew days. I signedon or a Stage 1 group course, best or rookies.The three-hour session starts with a 30-minute“class” ollowed by a couple hours o wave time.It’s midday when we get started in ourmakeshit classroom on the beach. Alex, ourEnglish-expat instructor, uses the sand as hischalkboard and enthusiastically jumps romposition to position as he gives us the rundown:paddle, stance, balance, timing and riding. Heeven covers topics like which side o the boardto carry against your body and the purpose osur wax. When he’s done, we rush the waterand put our theoretical knowledge to the test.There are only six o us, including a tattooedchick rom Detroit and a post-college nomad romOklahoma. We’re all technically Stage 1, but somehave already been with Alex or a ew days andare ready to catch more challenging waves artherout. Me, I’m just trying to stand. I stay under theclose watch o Alex as he makes his rounds,guring out what each o us is doing wrong andhow to x it. Surng sounds simple in theory, butwith each attempt, I wipe out.I’m eeling deeated, but Alex reassuresme, “It just takes time.” Dusk approaches asmoody clouds in the distance drit landward,threatening to end our lesson early. Frustrated,I try again, determined to beat the approachingstorm and my inner battle with the board.We get Alex’s amous “One more try, guys,”signaling the end o the day. Each o us waitsor our last wave, at the same time ollowing“surer code” to not get in anyone else’s way.As the swells pass underneath me, I muster upmy strength. I nally see “my” wave. I paddlehard and push mysel up on my board. For abrie moment I’m on my eet. I’m thrilled! I endwith a crash that is ar rom perect, but I’mstoked knowing I have a good place to starttomorrow.
Harmony Hotel rooms rom $165,including breakast; 1½-hour Innocent Sur School lessons rom $48 per person, including suroard and rash guard.
