CAMP OPERATOR



María del Mar - Camp Director:
I am proud to be Costa Rican, and thankful for the amazing gifts this country has to offer. My dream was to share our beautiful colors, nature, and epic waves with chicas from around the world. Through Del Mar Surf Camp, my friends and I are able to make this dream come true. Things happen for a reason. My life is filled with love, unforgettable moments and the desire to live every second as if it is the last. Pura Vida!

Angie - Camp Director:
The moment I came to Nosara for the first time 5 years ago, I knew this was the place for me. Two years later I was living here full time and working as a hotel manager. Nosara slowly changed my way of thinking, my spirit, my body and my life. Slowly, I became aware of the more simple but more important everyday things. Slowly, I became healthier and shed the destructive habits of the normal city life. Living in a secluded place helped me learn to go with the flow and lead a less stressful life. Surfing teaches me every day the magnificence of the ocean and nature overall!The surf camp is my opportunity to share with others this lifestyle that gives me so much happiness day after day! Nosara has a magic energy that draws people from all over the world, I can't wait to be with you as you experience it for yourself!
