Isle Inflatable Paddle Board Spotted in Costa Rica
Have you ever paddled a waterfall in Costa Rica? Thanks to Marc and the crew at Isle Surf and SUP we were recently lucky enough to embark on a new adventure in Costa Rica with the 10′ inflatable SUP. Upon boarding in San Diego we were lucky to not only check in the inflatable but also fortunate enough to have the baggage fee waived. Making it transportable and easy to travel with the new inflatable. Excited to arrive in Santa Theresa we only had one more obstacle, getting the surfboards and SUP on the small single engine plane from San Jose to Tambor, along with six bodies and everyone’s luggage. Without hesitation the airline was able to fit all of the luggage, surfboards and inflatable SUP. Whew!
Eager to try the new inflatable, we loaded up the crew Sunday morning to trek through the jungle on the atv’s to explore Montezuma and its landmark waterfall. Upon arriving we unloaded the SUP from the backpack, got it ready to roll and started our quick 20 minute hike up stream to the waterfall. The parking attendants looked at us as if we were crazy. Never having seen anything like this in a small remote town in the Costa Rican Nicoya Peninsula. After a nice hike up to Montezuma waterfall we immediately caught the attention of locals and tourists enjoying this breathtaking waterfall. All the locals kids were amazed and wanted to try out the new inflatable SUP.
I was immediately surprised how sturdy the inflatable was. We gave all the locals a chance to try it and it was awesome to see the huge smiles on their faces. It’s not everyday they get to see something like this in their hometown and it almost felt as if we made their day. After a fun and refreshing afternoon in the waterfall the crew was ready to hike it back down and head to town for a late lunch.
We concluded our afternoon with a frosty Imperial and fresh ceviche in the nearby town of Montezuma. If you ever get the chance to visit Montezuma I highly recomend it. The people are genuine and the local fresh fish was to die for. This day in Montezume will always be in my memory. With the new Isle inflatable SUP the possibilities of where you can paddle are endless! Thanks again Marc for making this trip extra amazing with the new inflatable SUP!
