Look no further than Kalon Surf, an all-inclusive surf resort nestled in the breathtaking landscapes of Costa Rica. Surrounded by magnificent waterfalls, lush jungles, and stunning beaches, Kalon Surf offers an unforgettable experience where you can embrace your inner Surfer Barbie and indulge in a vacation like no other.
A luxury resort destination like no other
Founded in 2011 by the adventurous and globally experienced Kjeld Schigt, Kalon Surf was born out of a desire to create the ultimate surf school in Costa Rica. After a life spent traveling the world and working for multiple prestigious companies, Schigt decided to channel his enthusiasm for surfing and nature into Kalon Surf. Along with his wife, Silene Vega Delgado, he has grown the resort into a highly sought-after destination.
As owner and director of Kalon Surf, Vega Delgado combines her expertise in the business and finance fields and her knowledge of the local scene as a Costa Rica native to elevate the resort and integrate it into the community. She has a strong passion for helping people engage in what they love doing most and has found great joy in mingling with and learning about guests.
Located on the beautiful coast of Costa Rica, Kalon Surf boasts a paradise-like setting that attracts travelers with an interest in surfing, great food, and endless incredible views. Kalon Surf offers all guests a Saturday-to-Saturday, week-long, all-inclusive stay so that they can fully immerse themselves in the experience. With only six rooms at the resort, each party has its own luxury ocean-view sanctuary.
Upon arriving in Costa Rica, guests will be picked up at the San Jose airport and driven to the resort. A typical week itinerary involves five days of surfing — with Wednesday as well as the departure and arrival Saturdays off — which are scheduled around the tides. In addition to surfing sessions, guests also have the option to partake in yoga classes, massages, and coffee tastings.
Each night, guests can savor delicious wine and three-course gourmet meals dinner-party style with the other resort guests, allowing them to meet other like-minded individuals from around the world. For adventurers, additional experiences such as horseback trips to nearby waterfalls, whale-watching boat rides, and rappelling, zipline, and ATV tours are exciting add-ons.
Hit the waves with Kalon Surf
Even though surfing is a major focus of the experience, it doesn’t mean that you have to be a surfing expert to enjoy your time at Kalon Surf. In fact, the majority of guests at Kalon Surf have never even surfed before! Sessions consist of a mix of pool time — where guests can learn and refine skills such as paddling, turtle rolling, and duck diving — traditional surfing lessons in the ocean, and video coaching, which helps surfers understand how to improve their approach the following day. Whether you’re a true beginner or an advanced surfer looking to perfect your technique in a beautiful, crowd-free location, there’s something for everyone to learn and have fun doing.
Kalon Surf is more than just a resort; it is a place where people come to relax, learn, and reconnect with nature. Guests emerge feeling refreshed and proud of having developed new skills, equipped with treasured memories and even brand-new friendships gained from the small resort experience.
So, pack your favorite swimsuit, sunscreen, and adventurous spirit, and get ready to embark on an unforgettable journey with Kalon Surf. Let the enchanting landscapes, expert surf coaches, and the passion of Kjeld Schigt and Silene Vega Delgado envelop you in an unparalleled summer experience.
Discover the joy of surfing, the magic of Costa Rica, and the warmth of a resort that feels just like home, but nestled in the heart of luxury. Your “Surfer Barbie” Summer awaits at Kalon Surf, where your dream of the perfect vacation turn into reality!
