Surfing is a fabulous way to enjoy the water. If you’re a board virgin there are thousands of surf schools around the world in beautiful locations where the conditions are ideal for novices.
1. Nosara, Costa Rica
Although some of the best surf spots are getting quite crowded now, this beautiful country still has plenty of places where newbies have a chance to learn to surf without being shoved out of the way by more advanced surfers. Places to learn to surf include the town of Nosara where easily accessible beaches are within a short walk of affordable accommodation. On days when you don't fancy surfing, you can join excursions to the Ostional Wildlife Refuge, a great place for olive Ridley and Leatherback turtle watching.
