This row of surfboards at night in a Tamarindo surf shop awaits renters to use the boards the next day. There are many surf shops in Tamarindo where people can rent boards and/or receive surfing lessons.
I have never tried surfing. I know, that makes as much sense as someone who lives at Pebble Beach who has never tried to play golf. Fortunately, Tamarindo is much more than a surfing town. There are many other things to do in the area and many other ways to enjoy the surf, sand and ocean.
