A Community In Action

The Costa Rican Surfing Association (ACOS) was born in 1975 with the first surfing event in Costa Rica, in Playa Langosta, Tamarindo, Guanacaste.

Starting with the first national championship in 1980. Preparing the first national team in 1981 for the ISA World Championship in California, USA. Since then, we have formed national teams that have represented us at world championships, including Japan, South Africa and Puerto Rico.

In 2002, the last representation was sent to Durban, South Africa, the same year that space was given for other organisations to be the ones to direct the destiny of the sport of surfing at a national level. But at the request of the athletes themselves, it regrouped in 2012, achieving the first championship focused on minor leagues and with the professionalisation of athletes. To then begin its work in environmental protection and social good.

Our main mission is to provide our children and youth with education, sport and healthy entertainment by developing a sustainable human sensitivity with the environment.

We are a leading extreme sports organisation that provides the community with quality youth sports events, collaborating in the education of competitive, hard-working and dedicated young people to promote a better future, while protecting natural resources.
