flying tips - I have found that by being super sweet and apologetic about the size of your board to the check-in people they always try to help you out. Airlines have all kinds of policies on weight, size and number of bags, however it's seems to be up the the chick at the check-in counter to decide which of these rules she wants to enforce. Also, tip the skycab at least $20 to help you and mention to them that it's your baby so the can try to protect it. They seem to be gentle with it as long as it is in eyesight at least. Wrap it in bubble wrap inside the bag or with your beach towels around the ends though. One more thing---never say your boardbag is more than 9'. The price will almost double on some airlines if it's over 9'. Hopefully, they will not whip out a measuring tape.
I agree NEVER FLY IBERIA.!!!!! - IBERIA ARE THIVES.
Do not fly Iberia !!!!! - From Charging nothing they now charge it as 20 KG overweight, and 20 KG overweight can go up to 200$ depending from where and to you are Flying.

Bogus - Sure seeing alot of Costa Rica posts featuring questions like "I'm going to CR and would like to know....". Many of there posts seem to similar to be legit. I think some surf camp is doing this.
Rent a Car - Im headed to Playa Hermosa first week of October and debating whether or not I should rent a car. If I do rent one, should I reserve it ahead of time, or try to score a better deal once I get to San Jose?? Any advice???
i have seen better - i like to travel quite a bit..and i have been in a few places in central america..and i notice that there is nothing to be found about nicaragua and honduras..i cant tell about honduras but i have been in nicaragua surfing at Playa Maderas and Popoyo..and the waves are great ..plus most of the time u have deserted beaches..so people..nicaragua is a good place..!!A+++++
Surftrip to Costa Rica in December? - Hi Guys out there,has anyone been in CR during December.Is it a good idea to go there?Are there rideable waves on the west coast (around Tamarindo) or is it to small at this time of the Year?And what about the caribean side?Thank's for any replies.
Instruction/boards - Yeah, the Loma del Mar Surf Camp is very good and has great instructors. I also suggest you start lifting weights and swimming more often to build endurance. But still, nothing beats surfing every single day! As far as boards, I agree...you need the right equipment to get going. Al Merricks are awesome! I ride Surf Prescriptions now and I love them, great boards. Invest in the right board and it will pay off. Buy several sizes and reap the benefits. Good luck in your surf quest!
Answer to below question - Regarding instructions check out www.rovercam.com they have some sort of surf camp near Hermosa I am sure you can find good instruction there.Now you also have to have the right board, I strongly suggest you buy Al Merrick (channel island) board, a shop in Jaco has those boards (see www.cisurfboards.com) do not compromise on any other board no matter what.I have been surfing for 15 years now, and only in the last 2 have I been surfing Al Merrick, which improved and still improves my surfing in an unbeleivable way.
