First, let me introduce myself by saying I'm a New England guy that surfs a break that on a good day is waist-high mush. I'm definitely a beginner (level 3 on the Surf Simply scale). I don't bang hindus, I can't shot the pier and in a push-up contest I max out at about 2 reps. I think my wetsuite fits ok. I don't take candy from men in white vans offering 'salvation'. Second, apologies for starting yet another CR thread. Bear with me as I'm looking for different information. I'm looking for resorts/locations that offer a combination of the sandals/couples-type all inclusive deal and surfing, preferably quality instruction. The plan is to head to CR with my buddy who surfs and our wives in early December 2017. Our wives are looking to do very little- drink, yoga, beach, drink, pool, drink, relax, etc. Ideally, my buddy and I would go to Surf Simply or something really similar but our wives don't surf (don't even really like to be in the ocean) so a strictly surfing-only (or heavily focused) resort is out. I'd appreciate any advice people have here on resorts, schools, breaks, travel, etc. for this trip. I think the better a trip I can put together, the more happy my wife will be and the more she'll tolerate me spending most of my time in the water. Thanks in advance!
