We’re excited to head to Costa Rica this week for our first ever Waterman XPT Experience with Laird Hamilton, Gabby Reece, PJ Nestler, Mark Roberts and the rest of the XPT Family. While our customary Experience attributes: including ice/heat, XPT Performance Breathing, Gym Workouts, Pool Workouts, Mobility, Stretching, Nutrition, etc are all on the docket – special to this Experience is a chance to have a unique, 3-hour surf experience with the legend of big wave surfing himself.
Hosted at the Santarena Hotel in beautiful Las Catalinas, Costa Rica, this XPT Experience is set to be our best one yet. Check out a recent article written by Jenn Parker at local magazine, Howler, highlighting XPT choice of this unique, tropical destination for our June Waterman XPT Experience.

Who better to show us how it’s done than Laird Hamilton, named by Surfer Magazine as “the sport’s most complete surfer.” He is a living surf legend, having pushed the boundaries of big wave surfing and helped to pioneer the sport of stand up paddle boarding and hydrofoil boarding. Hamilton has also become a fitness and wellness icon. In better shape than most surfers half his age, the 55-year-old powerhouse charger is essentially the poster child for an all-around healthy lifestyle that surfers can embrace anytime, anywhere.
It just so happens that Costa Rica is where Hamilton will soon be sharing his tips and techniques firsthand during the XPT Experience, a three-day wellness retreat geared to all kinds of athletes and fitness enthusiasts including surfers. When Las Catalinas hosts the event June 20-22, it will be the first time XPT Experience participants will have an opportunity to surf, train and learn from Laird Hamilton himself. It will also be a first for him.
“I have never surfed in Costa Rica, and I can’t wait to paddle out,” he said when asked about the retreat location. “I have always heard of great spots like Pavones, Witch’s Rock, and Ollie’s Point and especially Playa Grande, where we will be surfing for the Experience. I’m looking forward to that adventure.”
