Since Tico Wind opened in 1991 we have had one goal:
To provide you with the trip of a lifetime!
New windsurf gear every season - the Best Locations - Exceptional Service

The Best Wind on Planet Earth

Now obviously this doesn´t depend entirely on us, mother nature has to play her part! However we feel that if we do our part so will (here I´m tempting fate) mother nature.

Our part is having the best locations and equipment to suit the local conditions, as well as the service to match it! In choosing Costa Rica's Lake Arenal we based our choice not on how easy it is to reach the windsurf center but on the wind statistics. Because, let's face it: it's useless going somewhere quick and easy just to sit on the beach and dream of wind!

Join the Tico Wind Family!

Now having great wind and great gear is important but so is the service!

At Tico Wind you won´t be treated like a number, but like a respected old friend. We like to think we leave no stone unturned in the search to make your vacation "one of a lifetime".

Want to try a different fin? We´ll change it in a heartbeat. Do you prefer your footstraps further out/in/forward/back? Before you´ve finished putting on a little more sunblock the job´s done!

We're Here to Help

If you need some help, whether it´s sailing or local knowledge, a member of staff will always be glad to help you perfect your stance/jibe/jump, or to help you find the right restaurant for that relaxing end of the day dinner.

If you're a windsurfer who always wants to improve, then take advantage of a one-on-one lesson with an instructor. We have video instruction available (on request). It will cut your learning time in half. Just think, you go away for a week, sail every day and when you get home you´ll just smoke your buddies next time you are on the water together!
