Wakeboarding Bliss, Lake Arenal Costa Rica

PACR is proud to offer their services from one of the most unique location in the world, Lake Arenal Costa Rica.

Arenal Volcano view from Lake Arenal

Paradise Adventures teaches from a variety of location on the large 33 mile lake, one of the all time favorites being the base of the Active Arenal Volcano. What makes this location so special is the watersport conditions. Over 35 years ago the Costa Rican Government decided to build a dam, the result being Lake Arenal.

The damn is situated at the base of the Active Arenal Volcano, providing and amazing view of  lake 20 meters bellow and of  course the smoking Arenal Volcano. Besides being an amazing place to stop and take in the beauty, the dam acts as a huge shield, protecting the water below leaving nothing but glassy watersports conditions 365 days a year. 

Arenal Volcano, Lake Arenal Costa Rica

Learn how to wakeboard from experienced wakeboarders and take part in the upcoming clinics.  PACR is working on providing Pro clinics throughout the year, these clinics are designed to let students, vacationers and locals interested in learning from the pros to do so. The clinics will take part from the many unique locations on Lake Arenal.

PACR’s watersports equipment is updated regularly, insuring students the best opportunity to learn possible. The boat is 2005, with wakeboard tower, plenty of power, and fat sac ballast system. Creating a wake that is rated as the best wake on Lake Arenal.

The Fly High pro X series Ballast system pushes up a wake that is super hard and the boats extra wide deep V hull creates a glassy approach and smooth re-entry. Paradise Adventures number one concern is riders safety and fun, we have never had an injured or unsatisfied customer.

Wakeboarding Costa Rica

Paradise Adventures Costa Rica is growing, we are now known globally for our professional wakeboard , wakeskate and lake services offered in Costa Rica. Some of the main reasons for success being our constant research and development. As the wakeboard and watersporst industry changes and improves so does PACR.

Over the years wakeboard equipment and accessories have evolved rapidly adding more stoke to the scene.

Boats are throwing bigger wakes,wakeboard towers are  tighter, wakeboards are lighter, wakeboard binding more comfortable, better ropes and handles, life vest and so on. The main areas being, safety, comfort, control and ride ability, all of which takes your riding to new levels.

PACR has added new wakeboards, wakeskates, ropes, vest and a FlyHigh, Xseries ballast system to insure our visitors have the best wakesports experience possible. The boat with full ballast and 8 people now pushing 6,000lbs. The shape of the hall combined with the boats width creates a wake riders are comparing to competition wakeboard boats.

Perfect wake for begginer to advanced wakeboarders

The wake is super solid with a glassy approach, smooth re-entry and large lading zone; empty the ballast and shorten the rope and you have a wake that’s soft and clean for beginners. Having a competition wakeboard boat has its benefits for people looking to take there skills to a competitive level, but its allot of boat for the average wakeboarder, especially wakeskater, looking to shred lake Arenal Costa Rica. PACR has all the watersports equipment and then some to put a smile on any wake junkies face; beginner to pro and at a price no one can offer.  We are so confidant with our system in TOTAL that we will reward a 50% discount to any customer that finds a better set up from a legal Tour outfit in Costa Rica.

You can have the best wakeboards, wakeskates and wakeboard boat in the world and it all means nothing if your driver is a sleep at the wheel; 50% of the sport is the driver. PACR's wakesports driver was practically born on a lake and has spent hours behind the wheel in many different scenarios and many different boats. Driving for your friends is one thing, pulling a customer is another.

Equipment is one thing we can guarantee and satisfaction is another, in PACR's seven years of operation we have yet to receive a complaint nor have an injured customer. Part of insuring satisfaction is the expertise in the services offered, all of PACR's tours , lessons and Coaching is conducted by educated and experienced athletes, coaches and tour guides.

PACR has guest wakeboarders and wakeskaters visiting Costa Rica regularly; offering their professional expertise to students and vacationers. If you wish to take Part in the upcoming clinics and events follow us on Twitter and join or Facebook Fan page for daily updates on wakeboarding Costa Rica and other activities coming throughout the year.

On top of staying fresh in todays wakeboard scene with new inventory, tricks and what's what, PACR also believes your location has a little something to do with the overall experience. I have been driving wakeboarders and wakeboarding from Lake Arenal for 11 years now and in doing so found the best location; the base if the active Arenal Volcano.

There are many different bodies of water to shred on this planet and Lake Arenal to my knowledge has got to be one of the best.

The 33 mile fresh water lake, located in the tropical zone of Costa Rica, with a water temperatures of 75+ all year and perfect water sport conditions thanks to the dam and active Arenal Volcano blocking winds.

On top of being located in one of the most beautiful climates in the world, at the base of an active volcano; Lake Arenal has no other boaters, swimmer, seado's…nada…just you, mother natures finest and your board of choice.

The Majestic Lake Arenal

Take the above information and role it around your head for a second, put is all together and you can see why PACR is quickly becoming one of Costa Rica's top adventure providers.

2012 is going to be a year to remember, many vacationers have already booked there tickets and are counting the days until they experience what PACR has to offer from one of the most amazing places in the world; Costa Rica.
