Global Surf Culture in Costa Rica

Surfing is one of the world’s most popular cultural phenomena. While the number of actual surfers is relatively small, the sport’s reach has historically extended far beyond the wave-riding community, with surfing influencing fashion, music, film, photography, tourism, and even corporate marketing. Wondering how surfing got to be so popular? We’ll spend a couple of weeks in Costa Rica, a premier surf destination nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, exploring the history of modern surf culture. From nineteenth-century Hawai'i to twenty-first-century Central America, we'll take a deeper look at how this pastime has driven and been changed by a number of major global developments. As part of the program, you'll learn to surf! We'll spend two weeks in a number of coastal destinations (Nosara, Ostional, Playa Negra, Playa Avellanas, and Playa Grande). In addition to surfing, you'll visit a turtle reserve, learn about local sustainability efforts, and take a stand-up-paddleboard (SUP) river tour to a deserted black sand beach. You'll also have the option of doing the world's longest zip line.
