In the vibrant community of Playa Guiones, a diverse group of surfers thrives. However, it has become apparent that limited opportunities exist for locals to access the joy of surfing.
Recognising this need, we founded Tiny Toes, a charity dedicated to providing equal access to the ocean for all Nosareños. Our mission is to ensure that men, women, and children have the opportunity to experience their ocean and enjoy the many benefits it brings.
Through our completely free surf program, we aim to empower the entire community, fostering a love for the ocean and a healthy, active lifestyle. Each online session booked goes directly towards funding this program.
We believe that by providing this program we can make a lasting impact on the lives of the local community members. Our goal is to create a supportive environment where everyone can participate and thrive, breaking down barriers and embracing the beauty of the ocean together.
A FEW WORDS FROM TOMMY POTTERTON
Although born in Kenya, I learnt to surf while washing wetsuits at a surf school in North Cornwall, UK. What started as a summer job evolved into a lifelong passion which enabled me to travel the world coaching surfing and guiding tours. After five years in Costa Rica, I realised that this is where I wanted to live and build my life.
From my experience, very few people can get into the water with a board and surf expertly without instruction. The majority of us benefit from coaching. I started Ten Toes Surf to create a technical surf coaching centre where you can learn to surf in a step-by-step way.
We use a range of techniques such as:
coaching you in the water
video analysis of your progress and performance
special exercises to develop technique and mobility
water skills and safety
We cater for the needs of each individual. Whatever your age, experience and level of ability, we will design a programme to improve your surfing and enhance your enjoyment of the waves. We will have fun doing it as well!
