Surfing: Nosara, Costa Rica

With its reputation as a mecca for health, it’s little surprise that Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula boasts its share of fitness retreats. Few, however, cater to those who crave a more analytical approach. Enter Surf Simply: Its goal-oriented program has quickly become the go-to for Silicon Valley tech execs and East Coast media mavens who’d rather hang ten than just hang out. The weeklong bootcamp includes everything from video analysis to conditioning classes to lessons in surf theory, plus one-on-one coaching with veteran instructors like Jessie Carnes. $3,380, 1Playa Guiones, Nosara; 646-233-3139; surfsimply.com.
