Surf Simply France

Words by Ru Hill

We close down the Surf Simply Resort in Nosara for September and October each year, as they are pretty rainy months in Costa Rica. This left us with the irksome issue of having no outlet for our relentless surfcentric geekology.

As so often happens in these situations, Kerianne and Harry came up with the solution and a few weeks later we had rented a beautiful, big house in France, found ourselves an appropriately Gallic chef, and were hod nobbing on the beach with the world’s best surfers at the Quiky Pro in Hossegor, alongside an enthusiastic, if now newly neoprene clad, jolly collection of Surf Simply guests.

The whole trip was a blast. We got to see Kelly Slater tearing apart perfect waves right in front of us, as well as getting in all the usual surf sessions, video coaching, theory lessons and long European dinners where Costa Rican Imperial was upstaged by a nice French red.

We’re already getting emails about next year so that’s pretty much set in stone now as well as whisperings of a Surf Simply boat charter in Indonesia in September. So stay tuned…

Right now though we’re back in Costa Rica where the Surf Simply resort is being unpacked, polished and upgraded in readiness for the upcoming season which begins Nov 12th. Although before then we’ll be running the International Beach Lifeguard Award course (Nov 2nd-6th), which now just has one space available. So if you’re keen to do the enormously enjoyable lifeguard boot camp with us drop us a line.
