My dream for growing up would of been to grow up near the ocean so I could be one of many awesome sufers, I love it, but my childhood is almost over and I was stuck growing up with skiing, any alternative would be this sport right here.
Surfing is a must try in Costa Rica. You can get surf lessons pretty much anywhere on the beach. It is one of the most popular things to do in Costa Rica. Tamarindo, Jaco, and Puerto Viejo are great places to surf.
