YOLO Experience with Christian Cook and Vista Guapa

Christian Cook with Vista Guapa

Vista Guapa Surf Camp announces the unique opportunity to join the July 2014 edition of the camp’s popular YOLO Experience, a weeklong adventure of SUP, surf, fitness training and much more. Hosted in iconic surf town, Jaco, the camp (held July 5th-11th) will be led by CrossSUP® founder and YOLO Board team rider Christian Cook and feature instruction from Alvaro Solano, a seven-time national surfing champion and one-time masters champion in Costa Rica. With only 12 spots available, the YOLO Experience offers a personalized environment for participants with instruction tailored to individual skill levels.

"Vista Guapa Surf Camp offers some of the most beautiful scenery and surf but it’s the heart of the people that will change your life," said Christian Cook, founder of NRG Salt and CrossSUP® (www.crosssup.com) based in Madeira Beach, Fla. “I’ve been dreaming about the people and the swell daily. I can’t wait to get back down there to reunite with the Vista Guapa crew and meet some new faces.”

Recently featured as a “vacation that will change your life” in Coastal Living, accommodations at Vista Guapa include air-conditioned guest bungalows nestled on a five acre tropical oasis overlooking the Pacific Ocean. YOLO Experience guests will enjoy SUP surfing and flat water paddling instruction, surf paddle and race technique instruction, morning workouts, a yoga session, an excursion to a national pk or waterfall hike, airport transfer to/from San Jose and daily breakfast, lunch and dinner as part of their inclusive package. In addition, participants leave with professional surf photos taken by Wendy Solano to commemorate the highlights of the week.

“The YOLO Experience packs two weeks’ worth of experiences into one week, you leave both inspired and exhilarated,” explains Mark Salvetti, Vista Guapa ambassador and leader of the annual March YOLO Experience. “The March 2014 trip was another amazing week of fun, making new friends and of course paddling in some of the best waves in the world. Christian has a lot of great things planned for the July trip, and it will be a life-changing experience for those lucky enough to attend.”

Pricing for the Vista Guapa YOLO Experience is $1,700 per person for six nights of double occupancy with additional nights available on a pro-rated basis. For more information about the YOLO Experience or to make reservations, email Mark Salvetti at [email protected]
